Warsaw Case study – purchase of bus stock (130 low-floor low-emission buses) with associated infrastructure [Sep. 2019]

Summary

Year: 2017 - 2020

It is a very simple and straightforward measure which is essentially a purchasing choice. The city of Warsaw, in this case, decides to purchase electric buses for the city instead of diesel ones, setting up as well the necessary charging infrastructure. This will lead to fewer emissions, cleaner air in the city and better health for citizens and tourists.
