Buses Can Run from 9 - 15 Miles on a Single Charge

The public transportation in Montreal, Canada has been working with a new batch of electric buses.

In Montreal the public transportation system is also known as Société de transport de Montréal, or STM. In May 2017, CBC News reported that the electric buses have started to work in with other vehicles on the circulation route along the 36 Monk line; going from Angrignon Metro station to Square Victoria Metro station.

CBC News also notes that STM will start with three buses and give them a test run. The winter weather will put the batteries to the test with colder temperatures.

Watch a YouTube video by Montreal Gazette to find out more on the new fleet of electric buses in Montreal.
