St. John's moving toward electrification of Metrobus

The Federal government is providing funding to move toward the electrification of the St. John’s bus fleet.

There will be an investment of $200,000 to plan for the electrification of St. John’s bus fleet. The announcement was made in St. John's by Deputy Mayor Sheilagh O'Leary, MP Joanne Thompson, and Sue Connor, Project Lead, Fleet Electrification for the City of Burlington and member of the Board of Directors at the Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium.

With this funding, the city will develop a multi-phase strategy to transition Metrobus into a zero-emission fleet. The strategy will include a deployment plan for zero-emission buses, a risk assessment, a cost and savings analysis, and identifying infrastructure requirements.
