Cummins Goes Electric At APTA

The world’s foremost public transportation event – the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Expo – took place in Atlanta in October, and one of the biggest highlights was the announcement about an all-electric bus being developed jointly by GILLIG and Cummins. Utilizing advanced battery pack technology, a direct-drive traction motor and a regenerative braking system, this bus is anticipated to run 200 miles on a single charge with zero emissions. Attendees were also eager to see the wide range of Cummins products on display for the public transportation market, including the L9™ diesel, the near-zero L9N™ natural gas engine from Cummins Westport and the QSK95™ used in high-speed passenger trains.
