The City of Ottawa is moving forward with its electric bus project.
Councillor Allan Hubley made the announcement on Twitter, saying OC Transpo has secured funding for four New Flyer electric buses.
The buses are set to be deployed for testing in 2021, to assess how they perform across a variety of routes and weather conditions.
Happy to share that @OC_Transpo's electric bus project is moving forward. @newflyer will deliver four electric buses next year, with the goal of deploying for testing in Fall 2021. I look forward to sharing further updates on this exciting project!— Allan Hubley (@AllanHubley_23) December 3, 2020
