The e-Bus Ottawa Campaign is being launched by students from both the University of Ottawa and Carleton University who want to make a change to the environment at the municipal level.

Student organizer Justin Larsen said he got involved in the project because young people are fearful of the future and he wanted to do something to make Ottawa a better place.

"I'm doing this for everybody that is scared to live another 10 years, because I believe that if you start now, you might have a shot," Larsen explained.

The e-Bus Ottawa Campaign is a partnership between the students, the Electric Vehicle Council of Ottawa, Ecology Ottawa and the Healthy Transportation Coalition.
