This Roadmap identifies key technology sectors that need further development and demonstration to support the commercialization and fleet-wide mass deployment of Low-No transit buses. Critical technology adoption areas are reviewed to provide an understanding of current technology advancements and further development needs. This Roadmap focuses primarily on enabling technologies that will further develop the market for Low-No buses and their associated infrastructure solutions. Many of the advanced technologies and components featured in this report are also applicable to the clean heavy-duty truck market. This Roadmap also aims to provide a technological needs assessment for advancing the commercialization of Low-No buses and to guide future demonstrations and research in the Low-No transit bus sector.
