STL

Electrification

POWERED BY POSITIVE ENERGY

Electric vehicles are the future of transportation. The STL is investing in electric technologies and is committed to only purchasing electric buses as of 2024, so that we can reduce our GHG emissions and contribute to better quality of life in Laval.

The STL has been a leader in electric transportation since 2012. In 2019, we proudly introduced Quebec’s first slow-charge electric bus, which has a 250 km range, taking us one step further toward our goal of electrifying our fleet. For the people of Laval, access to clean, comfortable and quiet buses means that everyone can participate in the sustainable development movement. The benefits include:

  • Lower energy costs per kilometre, with an estimated reduction of 40% to 50%
  • Lower maintenance costs, with a reduction of 15% to 20%, because vehicles have no engine, transmission or exhaust
  • Reduced GHG emissions, with a reduction of 70 to 80 tonnes per bus per year
  • Improved passenger experience thanks to the quiet electric motor
