What city has the biggest fleet of electric buses in North America? Toronto, of course!
The Canadian federal government is too smart to follow in the footsteps of the U.S. where the lack of federal leadership had been shown in recent years.
Toronto has received $140 million for transit work (equal to about $108 million U.S. dollars).
Part of what it has done with that was to buy 60 electric buses. Of these, 35 are in service, and 25 are being tested before service.
But Canada is not alone at moving in the right direction for our future. Take a look at what China is doing:
By way of comparison, there are over 16,000 electric buses operating in the Chinese city of ShenZhen.
We hope that the USA will soon follow this path to not only keep our children safe on their way to and from school, but to help in our fight to reduce our emissions and for their future.
