Public transport II - First step to a Hungarian electric bus driven future
CAAG advocates for the introduction of electric buses in Hungary since the beginning of the LIFE project. One important step was made in this direction in March when public transport users in Budapest could test for 3 weeks a trial version of an electric midibus developed by a Hungarian company. On the occasion of the launch of the trial, the minister of national economy, Mihály Varga, held a press conference in the Buda Castle. According to his speech the aim is to position Hungary as a leader in the Central-European region in electromobility and in the implementation of electric buses.
Hopefully the test run of the Evopro buses will be successful and we can meet more and more exhaustgas-free, energy-saving buses on the streets of Budapest. Thus, at the same time the creation of new job opportunities for Hungarians will be ensured.
