All I was told by the St Al rep was the busses had to go back to California to have the batteries changed.Late reply, but St Albert’s buses are made by Chinese firm BYD. They have an assembly facility in California and Ontario. Toronto’s BYD buses also had to be taken of the road for battery/mechanical work recently.
It was in service. Last ran on November 17th. It was on display at CUTA. Returned to service on the 16th. It did complete it's full block on the 17th, so no reason to think there is a problem with it, but, it also hasn't been out this week yet either.it’s in service
