Yes, I meant battery electric buses. And there's nothing specifically happening in Kingston on that front; more just that I meant that in the coming decades, buses will probably be electric. That eliminates a lot of the environmental and acceleration-speed advantages streetcars have over buses... meaning that, IMO, going forward, building new streetcar networks to replace local buses doesn't make much sense.
