Vancouver is plugging into the future with battery-electric buses that charge in just five minutes


These zero-emission buses were made by Canadian e-bus manufacturers and will cut pollution, fuel costs, noise, and exhaust. Each bus is expected to cut 100 tonnes of emissions and save $40,000 in fuel costs per year compared to a conventional diesel bus.

This two-and-a-half year bus pilot project is part of a pan-Canadian initiative led by the Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC).
