St. Albert Transit is pleased to announce the arrival of St. Albert's new, state-of-the-art, battery-powered buses - Canada's first municipally-owned, long-range electric buses.
The new buses are now in operation and are currently being deployed throughout the network on both local and commuter routes. Drivers and service technicians have now been trained on the unique operation and characteristics of these new vehicles. Residents will notice the quieter operation of these buses compared to the diesel buses. They are slightly smaller than a regular sized bus and have slightly fewer seats (32 seats vs 37 seats in a regular bus).
