Dutch public transport buses switch to zero-emission vehicles

Emission-free buses in the Netherlands by 2025. This is the goal of the national agreement signed between The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment and public transport operators from the 12 provinces of the Netherlands.

The tone was set by the provinces of Noord-Brabant and Limburg that are already using electric vehicles. The agreement requires that the electricity used for the new buses is generated sustainably by solar panels or wind turbines in the region.


Minister Dijksma said "Noord-Brabant and Limburg are showing us that zero-emissions buses are an intelligent investment for both the environment and the economy. We will have cleaner cities and emissions of greenhouse gases that are harmful to the environment will be reduced. Moreover, it will give a significant boost to the position that the Netherlands as a country wants to occupy regarding making our urban and regional transport more sustainable. Dutch companies that develop technologies and manufacture buses can also benefit from this approach."
