Zero Emission Bus Consulting Services

The culmination of CUTRIC’s highly sophisticated modelling tools, Zero Emissions Bus (ZEB) Consulting Services help transit agencies, utilities and other allied organizations reach their decarbonization and electrification goals scientifically and neutrally. It includes  RoutΣ.i™ 2.0, deCarbonify™, ZevMapper™, CloudTransit™ and more. 

CUTRIC offers a full suite of services to support its clients throughout the process of decarbonization from technology feasibility assessment to full fleet ZEB implementation considering the current status of assets, identified needs, associated costs, benefits and risks along with operational data analysis and validation. CUTRIC has a client-focused service delivery model and the toolsets that CUTRIC offers are highly customizable to suit the client’s needs and specifications.  

 

Our research tools

Predictive performance modelling is conducted using our trademarked modelling tool, RoutE.i which is currently in its third generation

  • For Battery Electric Buses (BEBs), RoutΣ.i™ predicts vehicle and fleet range, charging needs, total energy and power needs, total energy costs, CO2e reductions, and scheduling challenges/optimization to support effective BEB charging requirements.
  • For Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Buses (FCEBs), RoutΣ.i™ predicts vehicle and fleet range based on hydrogen fuel parameters, fuelling time needs, total energy needs, total energy costs, CO2e reductions based on the source of H2, and scheduling challenges/optimization to support effective FCEB fuelling requirements. 
  • For electric Low-Speed Autonomous Shuttles (e-LSAs), RoutΣ.i™ predicts vehicle and fleet range, charging needs, total energy and power needs, total energy costs, CO2e reductions, scheduling challenges/optimization to support effective e-LSA fleet deployments for first kilometre/last kilometre requirements.

CUTRIC’s RoutΣ.i™ research team can complete feasibility assessments on a block-based or route-based format.

For full fleet analysis, CUTRIC always recommends block-based analysis inclusive of pull in, pull out, and deadheading requirements to generate a full picture of the energy consumption and charging requirements of your transit system.

RoutΣ.i™ 2.0 also assists organizations in accessing government funding and ensures that they have peerlessly accurate data before moving to procurement and deployment.

CUTRIC is a leader in empirical data analytics done using our trademarked and sophisticated analytics tool, CloudTransit 2.0.  Its purpose is to collect, integrate and view in-real time the data generated from various electric bus and electric charging systems which form part of the Trial across multiple transit systems and cities and in partnership with multiple utility partners. This tool will allow transit and utility participants in the Pan-Canadian Demonstration and Integration Trial Phase I to view the performance of the assets across multiple jurisdictions. As part of CUTRIC’s ACES Big Data Trust for mobility data-driven innovation in the future, this platform will form the basis of the integration and analysis of data from multiple sources.
