Transit Fleet Electrification

In 2017, Governor Brown issued Executive Order 17-21, which directs state agencies to accelerate zero emission vehicle adoption in Oregon to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As directed by the Executive Order, the Zero Emission Vehicle Interagency Working Group (ZEVIWG) was formed to coordinate and achieve the goals outlined in the Executive Order. Participating agencies include the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE), the Public Utility Commission (PUC), the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), and the Department of Administrative Services (DAS).

One of the goals identified in the Executive Order is “providing partners with information on electric vehicle use and functionality." The Executive Order directs ODOT to work with ODOE, PUC, and DEQ to “develop tools, information, and best practices to assist transit agencies when making decisions about zero emission vehicle bus technology adoption in transit fleets." ODOT lead the ZEVIWG's creation of this informational guide for transit agencies and the development of the Electric and Alternative Fuel Transit Bus Lifecycle Cost Analysis Tool, with support from the other ZEVIWG agencies.
