The Abu Dhabi Department of Transport takes a step towards sustainable transport this month by introducing two electric buses to the streets of the capital.
The trial vehicles, which take an average of four hours to fully charge and travel approximately 200km a day, will operate for six months. A 65 seater will take passengers to and from Marina and Abu Dhabi malls, while a 48 seater will travel between the city, Mussafah and Bani Yas.
The different routes and trip scenarios, together with the feedback from passengers, will help assess the cost and benefits of the electric technology.
If everything goes well, diesel buses and even taxis might soon be replaced.
Way to go green Abu Dhabi! Well done!
