TTC will dip its toe in electric bus pool by ordering 30

The TTC board voted Monday to buy 30 buses from three firms which make the suitable vehicles. They are New Flyer of Winnipeg, Proterra of Golden, Colorado and BYD Bus of China. Each firm will get an order of ten buses. The purchase will cost $50 million and may be seen as a tiny gesture in the direction of getting cumbersome streetcars off the street some day. CBC
