DASH and WSP collaborated in early 2021 to develop a ZEB Implementation Plan supporting the extension of their current maintenance facility to accommodate a future zero emission bus (ZEB) fleet. DASH plans to transition 100% of their fleet to battery electric buses (BEBs) by 2037. This transition will bring widespread community benefits by substantially lowering carbon emissions and decrease noise pollution throughout Alexandria neighborhoods. To accomplish this transition, WSP assessed the existing DASH bus depot and determined optimal battery electric charging solutions, preferred vehicle flow to minimize disruptions, and provided a future ready solution utilizing automated yard design strategies.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 21, 2021, 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM.
WHERE: Online webinar.
FEE: Registration (members, non-members, life members, students): $5.
One (1.0) Professional Development Hour (PDH) will be awarded for attendance.
