Twin Transit Electric Bus Demonstration to Give Riders Free Trips Between Twin Cities
Twin Transit is set to demonstrate electric bus technology for free all day on Monday and Tuesday.
“The way the bus is powered is with electric propulsion and not diesel — it’s a more energy-efficient design than traditional buses,” Twin Transit General Manager Derrick Wojcik-Damers said. “We want to get a feel of the public’s reaction. We want the public to be as engaged as much as possible.”
Route 32 will leave the Centralia Train Depot every hour from 6:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. The one-hour loop between Centralia and Chehalis includes stops along the Miracle Mile, Sunbird Shopping Center, Walmart and historic downtown Chehalis.
Complete Coach Works will provide the electric transit bus for the demonstration.
Riverside, CA – Complete Coach Works (CCW) is honored to have been a part of the GTrans ribbon cutting ceremony, held on May 31, 2017, to commemorate the launch of five re-powered Zero-Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) battery-electric buses.
Attendees at the ribbon cutting included Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Commissioner of the California Energy Commission Janea Scott, California Assembly Member Jose Medina, Mayor Tasha Cerda and Director of Transportation Ernie Crespo. This project represents CCW’s largest ZEPS deployment in California. CCW partnered with the California Energy Commission, Cal Start, Southern California Regional Transit Training Consortium and GTrans for this project.
“CCW is the leader in repowering transit buses with its ZEPS technology, as the zero-emission buses continue to gain popularity with transit authorities and their ridership. This project is CCW’s largest ZEPS technology deployment in California and is part of our commitment to transportation solutions for zero emission vehicles covering all major groups and mass transit industry needs,” stated Dale Carson, President of CCW.
