Launch Electric Transit Team

The City of Guelph’s largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is fleet fuels, and the transit fleet is the largest component of the municipal fleet. Converting that fleet to low/zero carbon drive systems offers significant GHG emissions reduction potential. Further, there are attractive potential funding sources such as the Province of Ontario GHG Challenge Fund, which prioritizes applications with the lowest cost per tonne of avoided GHG emissions. A team focused on this initiative should include representation from the following constituencies:

  1. City of Guelph Transit Department leadership
  2. City of Guelph Transit Union
  3. City of Guelph Finance Department
  4. City of Guelph Intergovernmental Affairs
  5. The electric utility
  6. Transit users
  7. Employers with workforces dependent on Guelph Transit
