Electric Bus Funding Announcement with Minister Sohi
On Saturday Dec. 3rd, I joined St. Albert City Council and the Hon. Amarjeet Sohi, the federal Minister of Infrastructure, for a discussion on transit funding.
As part of a total investment of more than $360 million from the federal and provincial government, St. Albert will be receiving over $3 million in direct funding to replace hoists in ourtransit garage and buy the first three municipal electric buses in Canada. The first of these new, environmentally-friendly transit buses arrives in two weeks, and they will have lower fuel and maintenance costs than their conventional counterparts.
Our Alberta New Democrat government, in partnership with Canada's federal government, is working hard for Alberta to create jobs and build sustainable communities.
