Total Transportation chooses Unique Electric Solutions (UES) to transform diesel buses into battery electric vehicles

Total Transportation is the largest ADA-compliant transportation provider in New York.

Augie Vona, CEO of Total Transportation, said, “Converting our existing buses to electric through uniqueEV® repower allows us to more quickly achieve our fleet electrification goals. »

Unique electrical solutions (EUS) announced today that Total Transport Corp., a transportation service provider in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has chosen its uniqueEV® battery back-up solution to convert six (6) of its existing school buses from diesel to electric. The buses will run in New York for the Department of Education (DOE).

Repowering is the process of taking existing, in-use petrol or diesel vehicles and converting them – or retrofitting them – into clean battery electric vehicles. This offers all the benefits 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.

Augie Vona, CEO of Total Transportation, said, “We are committed to doing our part to improve air quality and provide the cleanest, safest transportation possible. The conversion of our existing buses to electric buses via the uniqueEV® re-engining allows us to achieve our fleet electrification objectives more quickly. Total Transportation operates in three states, including New York, which recently passed legislation requiring all school buses to be electric by 2035.

Joe Ambrosio, CEO of Unique Electric Solutions, said, “Total Transportation is showing leadership in its transition to zero tailpipe emissions vehicles for the benefit of passengers and the community. They also recognize the benefits of lower fuel and maintenance costs to their business through bus re-engining, allowing them to reinvest in other electrification efforts.

The unique all-electric repowerEV® is designed for Type A through Type D school buses. Using a high-torque electric motor and modular batteries, a variety of range requirements can be met at different price points. Drivers and students are immediately at home in the vehicle they already know while enjoying the new clean and quiet ride. The system is available with various HVAC options, and is compatible with all school bus ADA equipment, including wheelchair lifts.
