School BUSRide highlighted Kimley-Horn fleet conversion expert Peter Meyerhofer, who spoke on the various dimensions and need-to-knows for school districts considering zero-emission buses. In the article, “Know the ABCs and DEFs of Electric Vehicles,” Peter details considerations regarding funding, electrical capacity, parking lot upgrades, regulations, and more to provide potential buyers with a path forward that balances environmental protection and effective transportation.

“Districts may need to change their operations and schedules to accommodate range, limitations, and charging requirements, and may need to adjust maintenance schedules and operator training protocols…while complex, the transition is certainly accomplishable and districts all over the country continue to take the plunge.”
