Canada Funds Belleville Battery Electric Bus Study

Infrastructure Canada

Today, Jennifer O’Connell, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, and His Worship Neil Ellis, Mayor of the City of Belleville, announced a federal investment of more than $150,000 to conduct a battery electric bus feasibility study and build a fleet transition plan project for the City of Belleville.

The study and plan will allow the City of Belleville to evaluate its readiness to transition to zero-emission buses. Once complete, the study will provide the City with a plan to guide its procurement of buses and charging infrastructure.

Through the electrification of their bus fleets, communities are fighting climate change while creating jobs and supporting the Canadian manufacturing sector.

By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country’s economy, increasing the resiliency of our communities, and improving the lives of Canadians.
