New York Bus Sales launches EV Hub in Batavia with GCEDC support

Project Overview:

As New York schools prepare to transition to all-electric school buses, New York Bus Sales needed to reach customers in Western New York and the Finger Lakes.

Project Solution:

Working with the GCEDC, New York Bus Sales identified a site for their business in Genesee County. Locating at Interstate 90 in Batavia provides a central hub to reach schools in the Buffalo-Rochester corridor and a pipeline of trained professionals.

Company Perspective: 

“As the GCEDC lead us through the process, we knew right away this was the perfect spot.”

Sean Finnerty, President

“(The GCEDC) helped us out immensely. Not only financially, but with the support through getting the job done. Introducing us to different people that we needed, making partnerships. It’s been a partnership with them. They are great to work with.”
