Paynton explains a training session held in California by the Southern California Regional Transit Training Consortium (SCRTTC). “That one was a great example of how they all came together and they got the funding. They conducted training courses for all of the transit agencies on one site.

Summarizing, Sanders states, “We are looking at a battery-dominant configuration using a CNG auxiliary power unit, which I think is going to be pretty exciting.” He continues, “It greatly reduces the fuel demand and applies to inter-city-type fabrication where you don’t have the need for the size of engine and transmission that everyone currently has sitting in their vehicles, so it’s a waste.
