Recently Grand River Transit unveiled the latest addition to its fleet: an all-electric bus! The special event was held in the Northfield Drive Maintenance Facility in Waterloo, Ontario.
The new bus was covered in black sheets before it was officially unveiled before a large audience.
GRT #22301 was built by Nova Bus in Quebec, Canada. The GRT's big bunny mascot was in attendance as well.
Local MPP Jess Dixon was at the event as well. She's a follower of Transit Timewarp on Instagram and even purchased a copy of my book "Grand River & Lake Erie Electric Railways".
A public tour was given as a part of the special event. We got an interesting look at behind-the-scenes of GRT's newest garage.
