ZEB Committee, Session #1 – TTC eBus Charging Systems – Lessons Learned
Delta Marriott: International AB

Moderator: Bem Case, TTC

Speaker: Michelle Jones, TTC

The push to decarbonize in response to the climate emergency has led to a transformative era in the transit sector. Federal targets to procure only zero-emissions buses by 2025 are fast approaching. TTC’s path to zero emissions began in 2017 with the approval of the Green Bus Technology plan. In 2019, TTC introduced the first 60 eBuses and the supporting electrification infrastructure. Implementing innovative technology presents new operational considerations and infrastructure requirements.
Panelists will outline TTC’s response and the lessons learned over the past five years to support fleet transition, including an overview of the program, strategies employed, planning and implementation, operational readiness and supporting systems.
