WAVE Wireless EV Charging Transforms a California Transit Agency

By Tom McDonald, WAVE Sr. Director,
Marketing & Communications

In 2014, the Antelope Valley Transit Association (AVTA) leadership set an ambitious goal — to become the first transit operator in the United States to roll out electric bus technology across its entire service area. However, the Los Angeles County agency faced a significant challenge: How to efficiently recharge buses on routes as long as 350 miles.

By December 2020, AVTA’s fully-electric 65-bus local fixed-route fleet logged its four millionth mile, less than seven years after its first electric bus went into service. Moreover, the agency covered its longest routes with a single electric bus without making changes to its schedules or vehicle count. This was accomplished because of AVTA’s decision to use wireless, high-power, in-route charging from WAVE.
