Electrification Game

Electric traction power is set to become the standard for transit agencies in the coming years, as part of a broader effort toward increasing sustainability and limiting the contributions of the public transit industry to climate change. The process of electrification will progress differently in every community, based on the local context, as well as the resources and expertise available to each agency. CUTA’s Maintenance & Vehicle Technology Subcommittee is working to develop a gamified tool to help transit agencies educate staff about fleet electrification, and experiment with different electrification scenarios calibrated to local variables.
