At the March 30th Committee of Council meeting, I presented a motion that was passed unanimously, directing The City of Brampton to begin discussions with Metrolinx regarding the future of our Downtown Brampton Transit Hub, and explore the potential electrification of their respective bus fleets. Through electrification, the City of Brampton can leverage the benefits of electric bus technology resulting in reductions in air and noise pollution within our community. Along with environmental benefits, by partnering with Metrolinx we can build a more efficient and cost-effective transit system, through the use of shared infrastructure and technologies.
