Canada and CUTRIC announce new zero-emission transit planning project in partnership with City of Moncton
The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, announced an investment of $150,000 for Codiac Transpo to plan the transition to zero-emission buses on February 23, 2023. This funding will enable Codiac Transpo, the public transit agency which serves the residents of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview, to develop a multi-phase strategy to determine the costs of implementing zero-emission buses, assess the risks and advantages, and identify the infrastructure requirements for a full bus fleet transition. By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country's economy, increasing the resiliency of our communities, and improving the lives of Canadians. Acknowledging the impacts of climate change and the urgency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in March 2022, Moncton released its first comprehensive plan outlining the City's path to becoming net-zero. The Community Energy Emissions Plan identifies key challenges and details an action plan to achieve the City's targets of net-zero emissions by 2050. CUTRIC's mission is to support the commercialization of technologies through industry-led collaborative research, development, demonstration, and integration projects that bring innovative design to Canada's low-carbon smart mobility eco-system.
