Today’s Solutions: December 08, 2023

Buses are already a greener way to get around than personal vehicles, but this method of public transportation is preparing for another eco-friendly upgrade in the form of electric power. Growth in the electric bus sector has been huge in China where rates of electric buses increased 78.4 percent from 2010 to 2019, and the market is expected to grow in the rest of the world.

The benefits of electric power and the increased awareness about clean energy have spurred cities to look for new green solutions within their transportation sectors. These buses improve air quality in crowded cities, have reduced GHG emissions, and cost less to operate and maintain than traditional combustion engines. 

Cities will need to pay upfront costs to buy electric buses and adjust infrastructure to accommodate the new technology, but in the long run, electric buses are an optimal solution for more effective sustainable public transportation.
