ZEB Committee #5 2024: Transit Network Design: How to Select On-Route Charging Locations, Plan Networks and Factor in Downtime

CUTRIC’s Zero Emission Bus (ZEB) Committee is a national forum for CUTRIC’s members to share up-to-date information and data related to ZEB procurements, deployments, predictive and empirical data and funding and financing options. It will ensure that Canadian transit agencies have access to the highest-quality transit-led ZEB data and ZEB procurement and deployment knowledge across Canada and the United States. This Committee reports to CUTRIC’s Board of Directors and is chaired by Erin Cooke of Winnipeg Transit.

The ZEB Committee will help Canada achieve 5,000 ZEBs by 2026 by supporting knowledge and experience sharing related to ZEB procurements and deployments.

The ZEB Committee will provide regular feedback and insight for policy leadership, as well as guidance to the federal Canada Infrastructure Bank, Federation of Canadian Municipalities, Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Canada, Ministry of Industry, Science and Innovation, Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities, Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, and Ministry of Transportation

This session delves into the complexities of optimizing on-route charging networks for transit systems. Key focus areas include strategic selection of charging locations and the incorporation of charging downtime into transit network planning. The discussion will critically analyze variables such as vehicle range limitations, seasonal variances, and contingency planning for atypical scenarios to ensure network resilience. Included are insights from transit agencies, a case study in optimization and on-route charging networks, and CUTRIC’s simulation and design approach for modeling. We highly recommend this session to transit industry members interested in integrating efficient charging infrastructure into transit network design.
