GreenPower Receives Order for Two All-Electric School Buses

| February 22, 2018


GreenPower Motor Company has received an order for two of its Synapse 72 all-electric school buses for the Rialto Unified School District, which will be ready by the summer of 2018.

Rialto operates a fleet of 68 school buses to support the transportation needs for students attending 29 elementary, middle and high schools.

Commenting on the new, all-electric school buses, Mohammad Z. Islam, Associate Superintendent of Business Services said: “The Rialto Unified School District is excited to add alternative fuel vehicles to our fleet.   Our partnership with GreenPower and with the South Coast Air Quality Management District, who provided grant funding, will enable our District to serve our students’ needs in an environmentally friendly manner.”

“There is an opportunity to accelerate Rialto’s electrification strategy with deployments of GreenPower’s Synapse 72 school bus,” said GreenPower’s President Brendan Riley. “This is a strategic win for GreenPower as our new Los Angeles sales office is located near the Rialto Unified School District so we’ll be able to show customers our products in action.”

 GreenPower offers a range of electric powered buses deploying electric drive and battery technologies with a lightweight chassis and low floor or high floor body. GreenPower’s bus is based on a flexible clean sheet design and utilizes a custom battery management system and a proprietary Flex Power system for the drive motors. 

GreenPower integrates global suppliers for key components such as Siemens for the two drive motors, Knorr for the brakes, ZF for the axles and Parker for the dash and control systems. This OEM platform allows GreenPower to meet the specifications of various operators while providing standard parts for ease of maintenance and accessibility for warranty requirements.
