Nova Bus announces a new order for two e-buses by Brampton
Nova Bus, a leading North American transit bus manufacturer, is proud to announce a new order for two fully electric Nova Bus LFSe vehicles by the City of Brampton as part of the Canadian Consortium for Urban Transportation Research and Innovation (CUTRIC) Canada-wide Interchangeability Project.
The announcement made on July 29 in the presence of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, completes the first phase of this ambitious plan to deploy electric buses in several Canadian cities, including Brampton, Vancouver and York Region.
Nova Bus has been working with CUTRIC since 2016 on the Canada-wide project to integrate electric buses and the charging infrastructure of different manufacturers into public transit systems. The goal of this project is to help municipalities make the most of the major investments required for electric transit, including making electric buses and manufacturers’ charging stations compatible with each other. The standardization of infrastructure and equipment gives more flexibility to transport companies, to the greatest benefit of our planet.
