The contract marks an important initial step in NJ TRANSIT’s transition to a zero-emissions bus fleet
AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, announced 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.
“We’re honored to continue our longstanding partnership with NJ TRANSIT in support of its mission to provide safe, reliable, and affordable public transportation, which is well aligned with the goals of our Sustainable Legacies strategy,” said Dan Faust, chief executive of AECOM’s U.S. East & Latin America region. “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.”

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. The firm will also conduct a systemwide bus garage survey to identify potential improvements related to fleet electrification, such as facility expansion, roof strengthening for solar systems and equipment, power supply upgrades, and installation of new technologies, including bus charging equipment.
