Electrify America Seeks Input for Zero-Emission Bus and Shuttle Mobility in Sacramento

Program is part of company’s $44 million investment in Sacramento as a “Green City’’

Electrify America is now seeking input and proposals from qualified groups to identify opportunities to deploy public or private zero-emissions vehicle (ZEV) shuttles and/or buses in the Sacramento area.

This request is part of Electrify America’s $44 million Green City Initiative in Sacramento that focuses on ZEV access programs, such as carsharing, ride-hailing, and other forms of shared mobility.

Proposals will identify existing or new services in Sacramento or connecting Sacramento to regionally significant destinations, such as universities, airports, or large employers, that will launch between now and June 2019. Qualified services would address either new needs or substitute for current internal combustion engine shuttle and/or bus fleets with ZEV shuttles, microshuttles, or buses. Electrify America seeks investment opportunities involving both rolling stock and charging infrastructure to support the services.

Electrify America is seeking submissions from entities that have a background handling fleet services, such as the operation or administration of a type of bus, van, shuttle, or micro-shuttle. Proposed services must be in line with Electrify America’s ZEV Investment Commitment and investment goals, as laid out in Appendix C of the 2.0-liter consent decree, the Cycle 1 California ZEV Investment Plan, and the Supplement to the Cycle 1 California ZEV Investment Plan.

The proposal period is currently open and interested parties can learn more by contacting Travis Brown at travis.brown@electrifyamerica.com. A webinar with additional information for interested groups will be held on February 15, 2018 at 1:30 PM EST / 10:30 AM PST. Electrify America plans to make a decision on new or converted routes by Q2 2018. Electrify America's press release is available online
