MTC testing all-electric bus for a month

The Montreal Transit Corporation is testing an all-electric bus for a month.

Among other things, it wants to see how the bus would fare during Montreal winters.

The trial period with passengers starts Monday and the bus will travel weekdays in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough.

The goal is to make the entire MTC bus fleet electric by 2025.

The testing is being carried out in partnership with a Chinese company.

    If they want to see how it will fare during Montreal winters then why didn't they test it in winter. Also why do we have to buy Chinese junk
