Burns Webinar Series: Progress, Challenges as Zero Emission Bus Programs Reach Scale

October 25, 2023

Burns hosted a webinar with two transit leaders whose agencies are navigating the transition to zero-emission bus (ZEB) fleets.

From coast to coast, ambitious climate goals are leading transit agencies to convert their fossil fuel-powered fleets to battery electric or fuel cell electric alternatives. The sweeping transition comes with a wide range of new challenges — touching on everything from procurement and equipment selection to infrastructure design and workforce development.
