BYD Canada announced that St. Albert Transit (STAT) has received their second order of 4 K9 35’ electric buses. STAT ordered a total of 7 buses, the first 3 of which were delivered in May of 2017.
With the delivery of 4 more buses, 10% of STAT’s fleet is fully-electric, making them the largest operator of zero-emission battery-electric buses in Canada.
The conversion to zero-emissions buses will assist the City of St. Albert in reaching the goals outlined in their Environmental Master Plan.
“We are grateful for the support we have from St. Albert’s management and team,” said BYD Canada’s Vice President, Ted Dowling. “We look forward to delivering more Battery Electric, Zero Emissions buses to St. Albert and Edmonton Metropolitan Region for years to come.”
St. Albert more than doubles their number of battery-electric buses, leading in Canada as the largest operator of zero-emissions technology
