LouLiftLogo

The LouLift can travel about 30 miles before it recharges in less than 10 minutes at a charging stop on its route. The bus pulls up to the stop where it automatically connects to an overhead, high-capacity charger. Wireless controls facilitate the docking process and eliminate driver involvement. The bus rapidly recharges while passengers load and unload and then it is on its way again.
