Halifax Transit's first pilot electric bus

The first pilot electric bus has arrived in Halifax.

It will initially be used for training, road testing, and public engagement activities.

The remaining 59 e-buses will be arriving over the coming year, with the full fleet anticipated to arrive by the end of 2024.

Approved by Halifax Regional Council in May, the Zero Emission Bus Project is the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada.

It means the addition of more than 200 electric buses to the Halifax Transit fleet, an expansion of the Ragged Lake Transit Centre, and an eco-rebuild of the Burnside Transit Centre to achieve a net-zero standard.
