NJ Transit has awarded AECOM an engineering services contract for New Jersey’s Bus Garage Modernization Program.

AECOM will be responsible for designing the infrastructure needed for battery-run electric buses at NJ Transit’s Hilton Garage in Maplewood.

The value of the contract has not been disclosed.

The company, under the contract, will offer conceptual, preliminary, and final engineering and construction help to prepare Hilton Garage for a limited deployment of electric buses.

It will also carry out a survey on present conditions at 16 bus garages across the US state.

This survey will assist in identifying possible improvement opportunities related to fleet electrification, such as facility expansion, roof strengthening for solar systems and equipment, power supply upgrades, and installation of new technologies, including bus charging equipment.

This contract represents an initial step in NJ Transit’s zero-emissions transition strategy.

AECOM US East & Latin America region chief executive Dan Faust: “We’re honoured to continue our longstanding partnership with NJ TRANSIT in support of its mission to provide safe, reliable, and affordable public transportation, which is well aligned with the goals of our Sustainable Legacies strategy.

“Garage modernization is a prerequisite for operation of a zero-emissions bus fleet, and we’re excited to bring together our team of proven program managers and subject matter experts with vast fleet electrification experience to help NJ TRANSIT achieve its strategic vision.”

NJ Transit Bus Garage Modernization Program features a wide-ranging upgrade of current facilities and infrastructure for a zero-emissions fleet.

AECOM global Transportation business chief executive Jennifer Aument said: “With increased investment in infrastructure that helps realize the social, economic, and environmental benefits of a decarbonized future, we’re proud to support our clients by delivering advanced solutions that accelerate the adoption of zero emissions technologies.

“Our dynamic, innovative technical specialists are pleased to help NJ TRANSIT implement its electrification goals as they relate to the passenger experience, social equity, climate resiliency, and futureproofing.”
