Pioneer Transportation Selects Unique Electrical Solutions (UES) to Recharge Diesel Buses with Electric Battery


HOLBROOK, NY, December 10, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Seeking to continue its quest for cleaner, safer and more efficient transportation for schoolchildren, New York City Pioneer Transportation Corp has selected Unique Electric Solutions (UES) to re-power five (5) Type C school buses from diesel to battery electricity. Buses will run in New York City for the New York Department of Education (DOE).

Repowering is the process of taking existing gasoline or diesel vehicles in service and converting them – or re-equipping them – into a clean electric battery. This offers all the advantages of a new electric bus, including zero tailpipe emissions, quiet operation and a dramatic reduction in operating costs, without having to purchase new vehicles. Going electric is a faster, cheaper, and easier way to go electric with commercial trucks and buses.

Neil strahl, President and CEO of Pioneer Transportation, said: “We are pleased to have been among the first to tackle clean transportation initiatives for New York. Strengthening our existing assets allows us to act quickly and with less risk by having an impact on the community, students and New York City. This is a new step in the deepening of our partnership with New York City, and we are looking to continue on this path with the administration of Mayor-elect Eric Adams. ”

New York City recently passed a law requiring all school buses to be electric by 2035.

Joe ambrosio, CEO of Unique Electric Solutions said, “We congratulate Pioneer for not only moving towards zero tailpipe vehicles, but for being smart in reducing their fuel and maintenance costs for their business. It’s a win-win for students, the community, and businesses. Our unique EV â„¢ repower is made in NY, for NY, by New Yorkers!

Battery-electric vehicles provide a means for fleet operators to achieve environmental and sustainability goals, including the reduction of greenhouse gases and noise pollution. They also offer a significantly lower operating cost than diesel or gasoline vehicles. There are many incentives available to help fleet operators take action, such as the New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program (NYTVIP), a program of NYSERDA.
