A provincial rebate program is helping businesses transition to electric vehicles. The CleanBC Specialty-Use Vehicle Incentive is offering $2 million in new rebates.
"Eligible specialty-use vehicles include electric passenger buses, airport and port service vehicles, motorcycles, low-speed utility trucks and heavy-duty transport trucks. Rebates range from $1,700 to $50,000 per vehicle and are available for businesses, local and regional governments, and non-profit organizations that are purchasing five or fewer vehicles," says a statement from the BC government.
HarbourAir used the rebate program to purchase a fully electric shuttle for passengers travelling between Vancouver's harbour and the Vancouver International Airport.
