According to a recent survey, close to 535,000 schoolchildren travel by school bus in the morning and evening in Quebec, which represents nearly 60% of the students enrolled in school. When it comes to electrifying school transportation, this figure shows the magnitude of the impact that this transition will have on our society and the number of Quebec families who will benefit from it.

In presenting its Plan for a Green Economy, which aims to convert 65% of school buses to zero-emission vehicles by 2030, the Quebec government is putting the emphasis on electrification. Also, several funding programs have been put in place to support the progressive adoption of the various technologies involved.

To reach the government’s objectives, Quebec’s school bus operators must act in unison. This transition presents a tremendous opportunity for Quebec carriers to operate zero-emission vehicles and to pave the way for other operators to follow in the footsteps of more environmentally friendly technologies.
