Omnitrans to Rollout Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure in California

Omnitrans, which provides public transit services in San Bernardino County, California, is collaborating with STV to advance charging infrastructure upgrades at its facilities.

STV is a professional services firm that plans, designs and manages infrastructure projects across North America. Through this collaboration, it will help deliver essential upgrades at Omnitrans’ East Valley Maintenance Facility and Kendall/Palm transit station, enabling the facilities to accommodate battery-electric buses.

As part of this project, new charging infrastructure at the East Valley Maintenance Facility will initially be introduced to accommodate 16 electric buses.

In addition, on-route charging infrastructure will be installed at the Kendall/Palm intermodal transit centre near the California State University in San Bernardino.

STV will serve as the prime consultant, overseeing all aspects of design for the project.

Mark Peterson, AIA, vice president and project manager at STV said:

“We’re honoured to play a role in advancing Omnitrans’ mission to create a more sustainable and accessible transportation network for the communities we serve. By spearheading these critical infrastructure upgrades, we are not only reducing emissions and improving air quality but also ensuring that residents have reliable, eco-friendly transit options that enhance their quality of life and foster a healthier environment for generations to come.”
