I/We the undersigned, petition Ottawa City Council to match the commitments already made by Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Laval, and Edmonton.
In the 2019-2022 Term-of-Council Priorities commit to a planning process to electrify the bus fleet, with a clear commitment to the following targets:
- Run an electric bus pilot in 2020;
- Introduce electric buses on regular service by 2021;
- Purchase only electric buses starting in 2024; and
- A 100% electric bus fleet by 2035.
