York Region Transit 1911-1914
They were ordered as part of the CUTRIC Pan-Canadian Electric-Bus Demonstration and Integration Trial, in coordination with Brampton Transit. Funding for the electric buses was initially provided by York Region and the Province of Ontario, with in-kind contributions provided by New Flyer (including maintenance, support and training during the trial period). The provincial government contribution was cut in July 2018 following the elimination of the provincial Cap-and-Trade program, with the full capital cost of the buses picked up by York Region.
These buses were the first buses to enter service equipped with new PRESTO card readers.
