HSR Testing Second Electric Bus

HAMILTON - HSR began testing electric buses at the beginning of December 2018. This week we have an Ebus from Proterra, the second model (of three,) that we will be testing over the next few months.

The electric bus will not be in service, instead, shadowing existing buses on a proposed itinerary that provides for different route geography, including three different escarpment crossings, long and short-range route options, different spans of operation to test battery drain, as well as reaching as many different areas of the city that residents may benefit from a less intrusive vehicle.

We have arranged for the electric bus to be at City Hall this afternoon - Wednesday April 24, 2019 on Hunter Street just outside the upper parking lot, from 3 to 4 pm; where you are invited to tour it for a first-hand look at the latest in zero emission technologies. HSR staff, and a representative from Proterra will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
