The Swedish bus industry has prepared an arsenal of actions that can be activated to stimulate cost efficient environmentally friendly transports. These suggestions have been presented for the Swedish government. Read the suggestions here (only in Swedish)
Volvo Bus Corporation supports the action with outstanding environmental products. Our product line offers Euro V and EEV emission performance. There is an increasing interest in biogas buses that creates a link from waste management via biogas fuel production to public transport.
The Volvo Hybrid Bus that was recently launched, has received an overwhelming warm welcome by the customers. After the initial sales to Sales Lenz, that I recently wrote about, many operators and public transport authorities have now understood that Volvo has taken the step from talk to action.
But, the most striking environmental performance is achieved by the Volvo Bust Rapid Transit (BRT) that actual cuts 50% fuel consumption and emissions of NOx and particulates.
To activate the actions the government needs to take some actions. Hopefully we can serve as a good example that offers both cost efficiency for society and environmental care.
