Stantec Zero Emission Bus Lead in Washington, District Of Columbia

Zero Emission Bus Lead - ( 2200001B )


We create the connections that get people and goods moving—whether by car, bus, train, plane, or their own two feet. Working within the context of the communities we serve, we provide planning, engineering, and infrastructure management services that fit the needs of our clients and improve the overall transportation experience. Join our team and help us keep communities connected.

Stantec’s Zero Emission Bus (ZEB) team is a leader in the industry. Over the past three years, we have been engaged by our clients on over 50 projects across North America and globally.

We primarily serve public sector transit agencies but offer our services to private sector clients as well. In this capacity, we work with executive and senior management at agencies to assist in the proactive transition to ZEBs, with the least impact to status quo transit operations.
