Over the past ten years, Nova Bus has delivered over 1,300 buses to the TTC, including hybrid-electric buses. With this new order, the all-electric LFSe+ will support the bus fleet electrification efforts of the TTC, which are part of its commitment to be 50% zero emissions by 2030 and 100% zero emissions by 2040 or sooner.
The TTC operates over 156 bus routes with a fleet of over 2,000 buses serving over 111 million passengers on an annual basis (2021 data), making it one of the largest transit agencies in North America. With this order of battery-electric buses, the TTC will continue to be a North American leader in the adoption of zero–emissions technology bus fleets.
This order is made possible by a joint investment of $700 million from the Government of Canada’s Zero Emission Transit Fund and the City of Toronto towards the electrification of the TTC’s bus fleet. The funding will cover the purchase of battery-electric buses and chargers, and support upgrades related to sites and infrastructure.
Thanks to its long driving range, its reduced maintenance costs as well as the elimination of all pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), the LFSe+ is a first-choice vehicle for the transition to sustainable transport. The LFSe+ represents a smart mobility solution combining the Nova Bus LFS platform, a durable, proven structure that facilitates access for people with impaired mobility, with the latest innovations in electromobility and security.
“We are delighted to build on our strong relationship with the TTC for this award of LFSe+ electric buses,” stated Ralph Acs, President of Nova Bus. “The TTC has a long history of leading in battery-electric transit solutions and this announcement is in line with the agency’s long-term sustainability goals. We couldn’t be happier to be part of that journey to support the TTC with its zero-emissions commitment and the City of Toronto’s goal of reducing 80% of its vehicle emissions by 2050.”
