Ruby Sahota, Member of Parliament for Brampton North, and Her Worship Lisa Post, Mayor of the Town of Orangeville, announced a federal investment of more than $83,000 to support planning activities for a transition to zero-emission buses in Orangeville.

This investment will enable the development of a transit fleet electrification transition plan, which will inform the procurement of electric buses and charging infrastructure. Studies conducted through this project will result in a comprehensive report that will guide Orangeville’s investments and decision-making regarding the implementation of a zero-emission transit fleet.

“Transportation is the Town of Orangeville’s largest contributing sector to community GHG emissions. This study will outline a step-by-step process that the council can consider as a means to replace transit buses with battery electric vehicles after the lease of the new, smaller on-demand buses is completed in 2028. Shifting away from fossil fuel engines, towards zero-emission alternatives, presents an opportunity for significant GHG emission reductions and is a step closer to the Town’s goal of reaching net zero by 2050,” said Lisa Post, Mayor of the Town of Orangeville.
