Opportunities for Accelerating School Bus Electrification in Ontario

There is an important opportunity for the Government of Ontario to transition to an electric school bus fleet across the province, and to stop the use of diesel-fueled buses. School bus electrification would help to combat climate change while protecting the health of Ontario’s children and other vulnerable residents by improving air quality. It also promises to generate substantial economic development opportunities for Ontario’s manufacturing and electricity sectors.

CHARGED powered by Pollution Probe

Pollution Probe’s CHARGED program (formerly the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Support Program) is supporting the Government of Canada’s commitment to having Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) comprise 50% of new passenger vehicle sales by 2030, and 100% by 2035. Accessible and abundant electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are vital for increasing EV ownership. To realize Canada’s targets, Canadians will need access to significantly more EV charging options than are currently available.
