The grant also allowed five gasoline hybrid-electric buses to be remanufactured with zero-emissions technology electric propulsion systems at a Complete Coach Works factory in Riverside. Adding the service of remanufacturing transit buses into all-electric buses enabled Complete Coach Works to add more than 50 employees.

The project is a partnership among Gardena, the Energy Commission, CALSTART, Complete Coach Works, and the Southern California Regional Transit Training Consortium.
