Long Beach Transit Taps ChargePilot to Support Electric Buses


Long Beach Transit (LBT) says it will use the ChargePilot charge management system, provided by The Mobility House (TMH), to operate its latest deployment of electric buses. 

New Flyer will provide 20 battery electric buses and charging infrastructure. Heliox Energy is the electric vehicle supply equipment provider.

This is the fourth commissioned transit bus charging collaboration between TMH, New Flyer and Heliox, following Knoxville Area Transit, Rochester Public Transit and Antelope Valley Transit Authority.

The charging installation includes 10 dual-port Heliox Flex 180 kW DC fast chargers.

“Long Beach Transit’s electrification project represents a key milestone for transit authorities across the continent,” says David Aspinwall, president of Heliox North America and CCO of Heliox Global. “By taking advantage of Heliox’s multiport dynamic charging functionality and managing all [its] assets with ChargePilot, they will create one of the most efficient e-bus depots in America.”
