The desire of Transit Agencies to develop fleets of Zero Emissions Buses is sweeping across the country.
This goal is in its infancy and the team at Capitol GCS is at its forefront. In addition to having individuals who understand the technology options available to transit agencies, we also have the experts who understand how transit agencies operate from the inside, executive level planning professionals to assist the agency chart its path, and senior finance and government relations experts to ensure the money to implement the plan is obtainable from government agencies. Far from just recommending a technology solution, our team can provide a complete management solution.
