Canada’s British Columbia Transit switching entire fleet to electric buses

B.C. Transit will make its entire fleet of buses fully electric over the next two decades as part of its efforts to reduce carbon emissions.

The transportation authority launched its low carbon fleet program on Monday. The plan includes replacing more than 1,200 existing buses and adding another 350 over the next 10 years, with the goal of having an entire fleet of electric buses by 2040.

Earlier this month, the federal government and the B.C. government pledged $79 million in funding for a new fleet.
