Hungarian city purchases large fleet of green buses
The city of Nyíregyháza in Hungary has decided to enlarge its public transport fleet with cleaner vehicles. The roads of Nyíregyháza will soon see 41 buses fuelled by compressed natural gas and six electric buses. A new electric-vehicle charging station will be constructed and public transport maintenance staff and drivers will receive full training to support the new vehicles.
Funds from the European Union’s Integrated Transport Development Operational Programme will be used to pay for the new vehicles. The Hungarian government also allocated € 19 million this year to Nyíregyháza for the development of intermodal transport hubs.
