Cutric, Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium, has announced a $1.1 million investment to plan the electrification of the city of Brampton’s transportation system.

The funding put in will support Brampton Transit in launching zero-emission buses, toward a full fleet of zero-emission electric buses. This is a key milestone in the City of Brampton’s plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050. The transition to zero-emission buses is expected to reduce about 115 tons of CO2 emissions per bus each year, and about 53,000 tons per year, which is equivalent to removing 12,000 cars from the roads.

«Addressing climate change and preparing for a climate-changed world starts with cities. CUTRIC is proud to work with the City of Brampton and Brampton Transit who, like us, are driven by technology and the need to trail-blaze zero-emission public transit in the country. This project will further support the transformation of Canada’s carbon mobility landscape and hopefully encourage other cities and communities to consider a clean transit overhaul of their own», said Josipa Petrunić, President & CEO, Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium
