Optibus - How to ensure a successful transition to electric buses: Software infrastructure strategies

Speaker: Ms Sinem Tirkes, Regional Director Turkey


Story: Scheduling is difficult, and EVs make it even harder.

When planning for EV adoption, many transportation providers focus on vehiicles, charging stations, and other hardware. But transitioning to and operating an electric fleet poses many complex scheduling challenges. You must be able to account for issues like charging times and locations, multiple charging profiles and charging stations, fluctuating energy costs, battery ranges, weather, and topography. That’s why software infrastructure for EV operations is just as important as EVs and charging stations.

This session reviews best practices for deploying electric buses and managing the transition from diesel to electric vehicles, scheduling for mixed fleets and all-electric ones, managing risks and costs, and how to handle range anxiety, peak vehicle requirements, and slow vs. fast charging.

Optibus will demo its EV management module, which is used by clients worldwide, including MetBus in Santiago, Chile (the largest EV fleet in the Americas), AVTA (the first 100% electric fleet in the US), and Stagecoach (the largest bus & coach operator in the UK).


Target audience: Public transportation operators, private operators, and transit agencies with electric buses and/or looking to transition to eBuses
