Codiac Transpo Zero Emission Bus Implementation Plan

Moncton’s Climate Emergency Declaration included a commitment to reduce community emissions by at least 55 per cent below 2002 levels (40 per cent below 2016 levels) by 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2050.

 

The City approved its first Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) in July 2022, an action plan for the municipality to net-zero GHG emissions by 2050.

 

 

 

Codiac Transpo contracted CUTRIC to conduct a full fleet zero emission bus implementation plan. The project’s primary goal was to assess the suitability and performance of ZEBs to meet the service requirements of CT under the various operational conditions and characteristics of the transit system.

 

This $140 000 project was partially funded by Infrastructure Canada through the Zero Emission Transit Fund and is expected to be completed in Q2 of 2024.

 

About Codiac TransPO

Codiac Transit, operational since 1981, provides over 2.3 million rides annually across 20 routes in the Moncton area. Currently, CT operates 24 active diesel buses as part of its Moncton fleet. However, the transition from diesel to ZEBs represents a significant step towards achieving the targets outlined in the CEEP.

 

Moncton, located in New Brunswick, relies on a diverse mix of energy sources for its electricity generation. As per NB Power, the province’s primary utility company, it has a total generating capacity of 3,799 MW1. In 2019, approximately 38% of New Brunswick’s electricity generation came from nuclear power, and 30% was from fossil fuels, including coal
