Electric mobility has gained momentum worldwide as a sustainable choice in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality. However, the adoption rate of electric vehicles (EVs) is low because of driving range anxiety, high upfront costs, and the lack of public charging infrastructure. A robust public charging infrastructure can reduce range anxiety and increase the EV adoption rate. Our study focuses on identifying locations for public charging stations to service intermediate public transport (IPT) and develop a scalable and replicable framework to identify such charging locations in the future based on available data. The focus is on IPT and public transport (PT) specifically, as the distance travelled by these segments per day is higher than the existing battery range.
