CUTRIC launches North America’s first group of zero emission bus research projects

The Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC) has partnered with seven research institutions to create North America’s first-ever cluster of post-secondary institutions dedicated specifically to researching battery electric and fuel cell electric buses.

With a vision to make Canada a global leader in low-carbon smart mobility technologies across heavy-duty and light-duty platforms, CUTRIC has partnered with OCAD University, Ontario Tech University, Queen’s University, the University of Windsor, Centennial College, York University and Canadian Nuclear Labs.
