RIVERSIDE, CA – Complete Coach Works (CCW) provided their Zero-Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) demo bus to Orange County Transit Association (OCTA) to support one of their Orange County Fair (OC Fair) routes.
The OC Fair, located in Costa Mesa, California has attracted over a million guests each summer for the past five years. This summer the fair opened its doors July 15, 2016 and remained open until August 12, 2016. Due to the large influx of guests attending the fair each year, OCTA adds a designated route to its route service. CCW is thrilled that their ZEPS electric demo bus was servicing the additional route.
“Working with OCTA has been a great experience. Seeing how much attention they put into each detail is what makes this property special. From the first day of the demonstration, OCTA actively communicated what their needs would be and with the support of the CCW ZEPS team, we were able to successfully provide an electric bus that met the expectations of this outstanding property,” shares Ryne Shetterly, ZEPS Sales Manager for CCW.
The 40-foot ZEPS bus was used to shuttle guests from OCTA’s standard bus stops to the OC Fair grounds. The bus traveled close to 100 miles a day and charged overnight with a CCW mobile charger.
CCW hopes to team up with OCTA in their future endeavors and is happy they were able to partner with them to alleviate their heavy summer route.
