Later Mayor Eberard wrote on his Twitter @m_Ebrard “First ride in the bus for Metrobus Line 4, diesel-electric hybrid by Volvo, the world’s cleanest vehicle nowadays”.
Jorge Suarez is coordinating the activities for Volvo “Yesterday was a great day” he says:
“The project is innovative because:
– it creates a new type of modern bus service in Mexico City
– it connects many attractions in the historic area, with the coach bus terminal and the international airport. Today you have to take several services to go downtown, while Line 4 will be a direct link, enticing many car users to leave their cars at home.
– it uses Diesel Euro V EEV buses and most importantly, hybrid buses.”
Soon another fleet of Volvo hybrid buses will join in on “línea 4”.
