Omnitrans has selected STV as the prime consultant for the battery-electric bus (BEB) charging infrastructure upgrades at the East Valley Maintenance Facility and Kendall/Palm transit station.

As part of this project, new charging infrastructure will be introduced at the East Valley Maintenance Facility to accommodate 16 BEBs, and on-route charging infrastructure will be installed at the Kendall/Palm intermodal transit center near the California State University in San Bernardino.

STV will oversee all aspects of design, including charging infrastructure, environmental, civil, roadway, electrical and structural services for facility design as well as project support services including project controls, project administration and constructability review.

This project builds upon STV’s prior collaboration with Omnitrans. In 2019, STV provided construction documents for several projects at the agency’s West Valley and East Valley facilities. At the time, STV conducted a preliminary analysis to explore the feasibility of integrating photovoltaic power (PV) and battery storage to enable Omnitrans to power its compressed natural gas fuel plants at the two facilities.
