Victoria Electric Bus Project

The electric demonstration bus is currently running a variety of routes in the Victoria Regional Transit system. Riding the electric demonstration bus is free! 

Since December 2022, BC Transit has been using the demo bus to train employees and gather information to help smoothly integrate electric buses into the fleet.

Customers will notice that the seating style and layout on the electric demonstration bus is different than what they experience on other BC Transit buses. The electric buses due to arrive later this year will look and feel very much like other BC Transit buses already on the road. For example, riders can expect cushioned seating, a familiar layout, and other familiar amenities.  

To help people easily find the answers to frequently asked questions, the demo bus is equipped with rack cards and interior bus cards.
