Logan Bus Company Inc.

As the largest school bus provider for the New York City Department of Education, Logan Bus Company Inc. operates over 2,500 school buses across multiple counties in the greater New York City metropolitan area.
New York State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act mandates that the state have a zero-emissions transportation sector by 2040. In an effort to fulfill that mandate, and to provide healthier transportation for our children, Logan Bus partnered with bp pulse on a demonstration project. Funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Agency (NYSERDA), the project showcases innovative concepts for EV charging infrastructure and accelerates the use of electric school buses.

A better future

Clean energy for a cleaner tomorrow

Improving air quality and demonstrating environmental stewardship to children was top of mind for Logan Bus entering this project. Through grant funding from NYSERDA, and vehicle support from UES, Logan Bus was able to convert five Type C diesel school buses to electric. They chose bp pulse to provide comprehensive charge management for their new EV fleet, allowing Logan Bus to actively monitor all aspects of their vehicles and charging infrastructure through our omega software.

Logan Bus’ new EV fleet will start serving students for the 2022–2023 academic school year.

Overcoming challenges

Problem-solving with bp pulse

Many school districts and school bus fleet operators face a number of challenges when trying to adopt electric vehicle solutions for their communities, like infrastructure build-out and navigating utility tariffs for fuel costs.

bp pulse solves these challenges by:

  • Providing predictable energy rates
  • Optimizing charging
  • Prioritizing lowest-cost energy

Beyond CaaS

Giving back to the grid

For Logan Bus, bp pulse will also be demonstrating a vehicle-to-grid solution to increase resiliency and further reduce energy costs at their site. Working with CPower to balance energy demand and supply, our work for Logan Bus ensures they will be able to scale their electrification efforts easily, and as needed.
Logan Bus is excited to be the first company in the New York City school bus industry to introduce an all-electric vehicle. Running this project and collecting this data is imperative to showing key stakeholders that electric conversions are economically feasible and currently a more cost-efficient way in reducing our carbon footprint. With bp pulse at the helm, we know we are in good hands.
