Montgomery County Zero-Emission Bus Transition
STV is leveraging its nationally renowned zero-emission bus (ZEB) experience to develop a master plan that will support the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) initiative to transition to ZEBs. STV is utilizing some of its customized tools to evaluate MCDOT’s existing transit infrastructure such as vehicles, bus maintenance facilities and depots, and bus stops and routes, for integration needs, while also investigating potential funding opportunities to support the client’s investment priorities.
MCDOT’s ZEB transition program is a component of the county’s Climate Action Plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions 80% in 2027 and 100% in 2035. The department is striving to have its entire fleet consist of ZEB technology by 2035.
