Zero-Emission Bus Technology Showcase and Symposium

February 6-7, 2019

The California Air Resources Board (CARB), the Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA), and the California Transit Association (CTA) are jointly hosting a Technology Showcase and Symposium to highlight and discuss the latest advances and funding opportunities for transit buses.

The Showcase and Symposium is a free event geared to provide information on the State’s current and future support for zero-emission transit buses to the broadest array of stakeholders, including transit agencies, air districts, metropolitan planning organizations, and regional transportation planning agencies, environmental groups, zero-emission bus manufacturers, charging technology providers, fuel providers, electrical utilities, researchers, and venture funding interests.  The Showcase will feature the latest advances in all aspects of zero-emission bus technologies. The Symposium will provide participants and stakeholders with updated technical information on zero‑emission technologies, associated infrastructure and scale up options, operating costs and fuels, deployment planning, and funding sources.  The date and location of this event are as follows:

The Symposium will cover topics on lessons learned to date on deploying zero-emission buses. Specific areas of interest to be covered will include: funding opportunities and utilization, moving from demonstration projects to scaled-up deployment, sustainable green jobs and workforce training, troubleshooting, using electricity as a fuel, hydrogen production and its fueling and cost, infrastructure footprint and scale up strategies, strategies to grow zero-emission fleet, best management on cost curtailment, and more.  

This event will be webcast. For topics discussed at each Session, transit agencies may submit questions ahead of time by 5:00 P.M. (PDT) on February 1, 2019 to Yachun Chow.  During the symposium, questions can be submitted via E‑mail to Auditorium.



Fleets and manufacturers currently building or operating zero-emission buses are invited to showcase vehicles, technologies, and innovations.  This will include fleets, technology providers, utilities, and other related industries.

The Showcase also offers an opportunity to set up a poster or booth to display the newest technologies or breakthroughs in zero-emission transportation.

If you have any questions regarding the Showcase of Symposium, please contact Yachun Chow, Manager, Zero Emission Truck and Bus Section at CARB, at (916) 322-7450.
