Home News Newsletters - Smart Move Global


#49 - December 2016        



Smart Move comes with some good news for the end of the year as well. The last issue of this year's newsletter updates you on the progress made by several European cities in implementing cleaner technologies in their bus fleets in their efforts to reduce pollution. Santa Claus would also be wise this year to take the bus - read the story and be amazed by how much CO2 he would save. Anyway, we hope he will find his way to you and bring you the presents you have dreamed of. Happy holidays.
