As well as providing environmental benefits that help meet national and local environmental goals\, electric vehicles also come with lower operating costs. \nLocal governments and transit agencies have often been at the forefront of tackling climate change and the shift from diesel buses to electric is a shift many transit agencies are making. Although there are benefits including reduced fuel costs\, less vehicle noise\, improved air quality\, and reduced emissions\, as with any transition there are challenges to overcome. \nThis discussion will draw on the experience of transit agencies from Canada and the U.S. and leading companies in the sector to explore those challenges\, and identify the most effective approaches to overcoming them\, and lessons learned through the process. \nConfirmed panelists: \n– Dr. Josipa Petrunic\, President and CEO of CUTRIC\n– Leah O’Dwyer\, Head of eBus Infrastructure\, ChargePoint\n– David Warren\, Director of Sustainable Transportation\, New Flyer\n– Jeffrey Busby\, Director of Infrastructure Program Management\, TransLink\n– Danny Ilioiu\, Zero-Emissions Fleet Strategic Planning Manager\, King County Metro \n– Martin Claessens\, Principal Commercial Officer\, US Commercial Services \n  \nRegister here.\nCanada-U.S. Infrastructure Exchange – The Road to Transit Electrification was last modified: February 8th\, 2021 by URL: ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
