Chattanooga Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) took delivery of their first three BYD K9 electric buses.
Earlier this year, CARTA received a “Smart City” award for its innovative EV-charging and car-share project. The integration of more electric buses will help CARTA achieve its goal of having a zero-emissions fleet. Chattanooga is aggressively pursuing non-traditional transportation planning and infrastructure.
Momentum Dynamics developed a 200-kilowatt wireless charging system to support zero-emission transit buses in Chattanooga. The system automatically charges as passengers load and unload.
BYD North America also recently announced its joint venture with Generate Capital, Inc., a leading financier, owner, and operator of distributed infrastructure, to launch the first electric bus leasing program of its kind in the United States.
