In response to the two preceding posts, there’s a lot of cities around the world that are confident in the technology. Milan, Paris and Warsaw cumulatively have well over a thousand electric buses on order. I’m sure our four buses present TL/CMBC with a significant learning curve, but it’s just a matter of adapting to the differences. I also think North American manufactures were quite late to start developing this technology, which may explain some of the reliability issues, but if other cities can make it work, why can’t we?
Lastly, I think funding for electric vehicles may also be easier due to the increasing amount of climate strategies and the increasing amount of money allocated to pertinent initiatives (TL is smart to tap in on this, no pun intended).
