In addition to reducing greenhouse gases that cause global warming by 95%, Ottawa’s e-buses will eliminate about 92 tonnes of NOx pollution that is the cause of respiratory stress for people living in Ottawa.  Particulate pollution from exhaust is also eliminated.  Buses create particulate pollution from the wear on brakes, this is also reduced by about 75% as much of the braking is done by regeneration where the motor recovers energy and  uses it to charge the battery.

e-Buses are quiet, reducing noise pollution along their routes.
