2017 BYD Auto K9S35 Battery/Electric

After around six months of delays, St. Albert Transit took delivery of 3 BYD Auto K9S35 battery electric buses in May of 2017. Not counting the numerous demonstrators that have appeared over the years, these are the first production battery electric buses in service with a Canadian transit system. So far they can be found on a number of routes within St. Albert, as well as on commuter runs to and from Edmonton.
