With predictable routes and consistent duty cycles, school bus fleets provide an ideal opportunity for vehicle electrification.

As more school bus fleets begin to incorporate electric vehicles, they’re faced with challenges including:

  • evaluating the many different options for EVs and charging systems
  • identifying the best routes to electrify now and in the future
  • choosing between different procurement models
  • managing upfront costs and applying for grant funding opportunities
  • implementing smart charging strategies to keep energy consumption and costs under control
  • partnering with local utility providers

BetterFleet works with school bus fleets to navigate these challenges from planning to implementation and beyond, using software-based solutions that streamline the transition to zero emissions.
