Over the next five years, Vancouver’s largest sightseeing operator, WESTCOAST Sightseeing, will be replacing its fleet with zero-emission electric buses. In partnership with BYD—the world’s largest manufacturer of electric vehicles—WESTCOAST added the first of the more than 80 buses earlier this year. The fully operational fleet is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 2,000 tons per year. The buses will operate daily tours of Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria.

This past October, the world lost a business and philanthropic giant with the passing of Paul Allen. Here in the Northwest, his absence will be deeply felt. Among his many achievements, Allen co-founded Microsoft; founded Vulcan Inc., Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, Allen Institute for Brain Sciences, and Allen Institute for Cell Science; and was owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers. There doesn’t seem to be an industry that he hasn’t touched, expanded and improved, including the meetings and events industry, particularly in the Seattle area.
