Harbour Air pioneers electric shuttle bus
Published 4:44 PDT, Wed August 5, 2020
A leader in clean technology in BC’s transportation sector, Harbour Air recently purchased a fully electric, zero emission passenger shuttle bus.
The company plans to use the bus to transport passengers to and from Vancouver International Airport.
Harbour Air is also testing a fully electric seaplane and announced a successful flight of the world’s first all-electric commercial aircraft in December of 2019. The flight marked the start of the third era in aviation: the electric age.
“We are standing on the edge of a new era in aviation and sustainable travel,” said Harbour Air founder and CEO Greg McDougall. “Canada has had a longstanding history in aviation leadership and British Columbia in particular has led the way in its environmental sustainability. We are proud to continue that forward-thinking legacy. This commitment by our government to support local businesses and innovation exemplifies the leadership and dedication required to make meaningful impact.”
Harbour Air is also receiving a rebate through a new $2 million provincial program that helps businesses buy electric vehicles. The new bus was purchased from BC company GreenPower Motor Company.
