E-buses headed to Ogden Bus Rapid Transit line
UTA has designated 11 of the initial buses to operate on the 5.3-mile Ogden Bus Rapid Transit line which will run from Ogden FrontRunner Station, through downtown Ogden, through the Weber State University campus to McKay-Dee Hospital. Of the 44 electric buses in the initial contract, thirteen will be delivered to Park City, Utah.
GILLIG’s deep experience with electrification dates to 2001 with development of an electric trolley bus. For the next two decades, GILLIG perfected electrification technologies in its hybrid and battery electric product offerings. The buses are 100 percent built by American workers in Livermore.
