WSP Involvement Across the World
WSP has developed a proprietary simulation tool called BOLT (Bus Optimisation Lifecycle Tool). BOLT simulates electric bus routes and creates a system network electrifiable index for agencies to understand which route can be electrified today. The tool’s business intelligence dashboard provides users with comparisons of various battery sizes and charging platforms over the operating lifecycle.
Our EV experts are active on all continents to help in the establishment of transportation programs that will have long-lasting results. In Canada, WSP is currently providing electric bus feasibility studies for Halifax Transit and Calgary Transit. In the United States, WSP has provided electric vehicle charging infrastructure design for IndyGO (Indianapolis, Indiana) and provided a comprehensive feasibility study for King County Metro Transit (Seattle, Washington), which has the largest fleet order of electric buses in the US today.
WSP has also worked on electric bus projects in South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. In the UK, WSP has helped develop policy around London’s private electric vehicle adoption and charging infrastructure. WSP has conducted multiple feasibility studies in Sweden for the adoption of electric buses.
