The Government of Canada is contributing $100,000 to this project through the Zero Emission Transit Fund (ZETF), and Quinte Transit, through the City of Quinte West, is contributing $25,000.

QUINTE WEST — A joint investment of $125,000 will go towards the transition to a full fleet of zero-emission vehicles for Quinte Transit.

Through this investment, the City of Quinte West and Quinte Transit will complete the necessary planning required to transition to a full fleet of zero-emission vehicles, including an evaluation of the economic, technological, and environmental aspects of deploying zero-emission public transit vehicles.

“The City of Quinte West is actively taking steps to minimize its carbon footprint, and I am enthusiastic about collaborating with them and Quinte Transit to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and tackle the ongoing climate crisis,” said Mark Gerretsen, Parliamentary Secretary to the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons and Member of Parliament for Kingston and the Islands, on behalf of the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities. “A collective effort is required from everyone to reach the goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.”
