02.17.17 | Leave a Comment

Seattle, WA – Parametrix has been selected by King County Metro to perform work order engineering services for their battery-electric bus charging infrastructure.

King County Metro Transit will be transferring to an all-electric and hybrid bus fleet within three years. They are well on their way to achieving this goal with hybrid buses throughout the fleet and initiation of all electric buses. The key to this project’s success will be to confirm that there are sufficient bus charging stations, both fast and long-term charging stations, throughout the service area. These stations will need to be on-line as soon as possible and operational as the fleet increases in 2017 and 2018.

Parametrix has a long history working with Metro on previous and current work order engineering, environmental, and planning contracts, and we look forward to continuing our service to Metro on this work order contract.
