PSTA taps wireless technology to cut the time it takes for an electric bus to charge


    The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority has begun construction on a new electric bus charging station at PSTA’s transfer hub next to the agency’s headquarters in St. Petersburg.

    The wireless technology will more than cut in half the time the time it takes for electric buses to recharge. It will allow PSTA’s all-electric buses to remain in service throughout the workday, said Joe Barkley, PSTA board chair.
