Home News Newsletters - Smart Move Global


#44 - June 2016        



At this time of year, those of us in the northern hemisphere turn our minds to the fast approaching holiday season, the Smart Move team included. This edition of the newsletter looks at stories relating to coach tourism or bus tours which might give some examples of the great things going on in the industry to help people make the most of their holiday time. But you can also read about the uptake of fully electric buses by cities or about the efficiency of these buses after one year of service. IRU activities in passenger transport in different parts of the world are also highlighted. The 'Innovator of the month' and the Smart Move recommendation are, of course, not missing. Enjoy your read.
