STRATFORD — A federal investment of $96,000 will support Stratford in planning for the transition of its transit fleet to zero-emission buses.

This investment will enable the City of Stratford to conduct a feasibility study that will assist with the transition to electric buses. This work will result in a report that will inform the City’s procurement process and identify first steps for transitioning to a zero emission bus fleet, ensuring that public transit continues to serve residents while minimizing its environmental impact.

“By investing in bus fleet electrification, we are investing in sustainable communities. The funding announced today will help the residents of Stratford create a greener, more energy efficient environment for the future. We will continue to work with Stratford and communities across the country to build sustainable public transportation systems that benefit Canadians today and for generations to come,” said Tim Louis, Member of Parliament for Kitchener—Conestoga, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities
