Northern Virginia transit agencies covered by this plan are: City of Alexandria (DASH), Arlington Transit (ART), Fairfax City-University Energysaver (CUE), Fairfax Connector, Loudoun County Transit (LCT) and OmniRide.
The plan identifies six strategies to support Northern Virginia transit agencies’ zero-emission bus (ZEB) transitions over the next five years:
Serve as a Regional ZEB Forum
Advocate for Consistent and Supportive ZEB Standards and Policies
Provide Regional ZEB Funding Coordination
Support Development of Shared BEB Charging Infrastructure
Evaluate Opportunities for Private Partnerships Related to ZEBs
Support ZEB Workforce Training and Education
Actions, or steps, are described for each strategy and are categorized into a phased five-year implementation plan. The NVTC-led actions complement and leverage individual agencies’ ZEB transition plans and broader regional ZEB initiatives.
The plan also discusses ZEB industry trends, shared infrastructure opportunities, supportive policies and standards, regional collaboration and coordination needs and funding opportunities.
As the next phase of work, InfraStrategies is supporting NVTC in implementing initial recommendations from the Plan.
