ZEB Committee #6 2024: Optimizing Transit Agency Operations: Fleet Size, Replacement and Spare Ratios

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 targets the operational optimization challenges faced by transit agencies, particularly in balancing fleet size with the capacities of both on-route and in-depot charging networks. We will explore the economic impact of different replacement and spare ratios between diesel fleets and ZEBs, with a focus on the total cost of ownership in fleet management.

We will also delve into the broader implications of transit network design decisions, analyzing their impact on operational aspects such as fleet size optimization, operator staffing levels, network resiliency, and scheduling.
