Last week I got the opportunity to visit Zurich and I learned that more than 60% of the people make their daily travel with public transports. For being an urban area of about a million persons this must be a world record. I was glad to learn that more than 10% walk and bike. Facilitating walking and biking is often forgotten when public transports and cars are high on the political agenda.
There are now Volvo hybrid buses and fleets running in 13 municipalities in Switzerland.
Swiss transport authorities have particularly high demands on environmental performance and I am of course glad that our 7700 Hybrid (and from next year 7900 Hybrid) has taken off like a rocket.
