FTA Transit Bus Electrification Tool v1.0


The Transit Bus Electrification Tool is a Microsoft Excel-based spreadsheet tool that allows users to estimate the partial lifecycle greenhouse gas emission savings associated with replacing standard bus fleets with low-emission or zero-emission transit buses. 

Refer to the accompanying Transit Bus Electrification v1.0: User Guide for detailed instructions on how to use the tool. The User Guide also provides information on the GHG emission factors, data sources, and assumptions used in the tool.

In addition, see the brief video tutorial for a step-by-step demonstration on how to use the Transit Bus Electrification Tool to estimate the greenhouse gas emissions savings from zero-emission fleet conversion scenarios.
