NJ Transit Awards AECOM Consulting Contract, Upgrading Garages Statewide to Accommodate Electric Buses

Infrastructure consulting giant AECOM says it has been awarded a contract by NJ Transit to provide engineering services for its Bus Garage Modernization Program. In this role, AECOM will design the infrastructure required for battery electric buses at NJ Transit’s Hilton Garage in Maplewood and conduct a survey of current conditions at 16 bus garages statewide. 

This work will help identify the required infrastructure upgrades needed to aid in the agency’s zero-emissions transition.

 “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,” says AECOM’s U.S. East and Latin America markets chief.

NJ Transit’s Bus Garage Modernization Program involves the extensive upgrading of existing facilities and infrastructure to support accommodation of a zero-emissions fleet. Under the contract, AECOM will provide conceptual, preliminary, and final engineering and construction assistance to prepare Hilton Garage for a limited deployment of electric buses.
