New electric buses and parking strategy for Bucharest (Romania)

From March 2015 Bucharest will be home to two new electric buses and will begin developing a new parking management system.

The buses, which can travel up to 250 kilometres daily when charged overnight, are being loaned to Bucharest for a trial period from a Chinese organisation.

‘The Chinese company has developed a very effective model of electric bus. They charge for a few hours at night and can run all the next day,’ said Ion Dedu, Executive Director of the Department of Transport.
