York Region Transit 1921-1922
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 Nova Bus (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.
Production of this order was complete by early 2020; the buses entered service in early November of the same year.
These buses were delivered with no decals; they were later wrapped with green and blue decals for the electric bus trial.
