Title: The Technical Feasibility of Implementing Electric Buses for Public Transit in Honolulu, Hawaii
Authors: Okawa, Ronald
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: A self-propelled electric bus with a curb weight of 20,000 pounds and a seating capacity of 49 passengers appears to be technically feasible for use in Honolulu. The 4,375 pound lead-acid traction batteries used are capable of meeting the power requirements of such a bus, permitting it to perform comparably to the conventional motor bus.
