HEVO to Supply 105 Wireless EV Chargers for New York’s Dollar Vans

HEVO has been awarded a contract to supply 105 wireless EV charging stations to support seamless charging of New York’s dollar van commuter fleets, which will bring electric transit to underserved communities.

This order has been enabled by 10 million USD awarded to Dollaride under the 85 million USD New York Clean Transportation Prizes programme for the Clean Transit Access Program (CTAP),

Over 120,000 daily commuters use Dollaride’s network of dollar vans to connect to public transit hubs within the city. This is the equivalent of filling approximately 1,600 MTA buses.

Through this service, Dollaride aims to make public transportation accessible to everyone, starting with those who live in transit gaps.

The 10 million USD CTAP prize will fund the electrification of these fleets, including the supply of charging infrastructure from HEVO.

HEVO’s Rezonant wireless charging infrastructure will be established at highly trafficked retail locations to charge wireless-enabled fleets at night. Meanwhile, plug-in chargers will be available for community members to use during the day, thus further benefiting the areas served by dollar vans.

Jeremy McCool, HEVO's Founder & CEO said:

“Part of our mission is to make clean transportation universally accessible. By providing seamless wireless charging for CTAP drivers, we ensure a full charge every morning and simultaneously serve the community during the day with plugin charging using our hybrid wireless and plugin infrastructure.

“CTAP allows HEVO to establish a future-proof wireless and plugin network in our home city of New York and ensure outer boroughs are not left behind during this transition to clean mobility. We are thrilled to be working with Dollaride, BlocPower, and Build Edison to make CTAP a reality.”

Dollar vans are a type of semi-formal public transport vehicles serving areas where other public forms of transport are insufficient.
