Budapest residents can test another electric bus on line 105 from June 2, the Budapest Transport Center (BKK) informed MTI.
BKK and its second largest service provider, ArrivaBus, are testing BYD’s state-of-the-art, fully electric city bus, the BYD K9 UB 12m eBus, in a real-world traffic environment.
A vehicle with the E105 sign on line 105 can be tested free of charge for 2 weeks from 2 June.
China-based BYD’s 12-meter, full-length low-floor, double-climate solo bus can cover 300 kilometers on a single charge.
In 2019, the Budapest General Assembly adopted the Budapest Mobility Plan, one of the important objectives of which is the use of modern, environmentally friendly vehicles in public transport. BKK prefers to purchase zero-emission trolleybuses and electric buses.
