Good news on the modernization of the public transport in Timișoara: Mayor Nicolae Robu has announced that the European-funded project regarding the purchase of 44 electric buses has been approved.
The Order for the Project Financing was signed on the 1st of October by Deputy Prime Minister Vasile Daniel Suciu, the Minister for Regional Development and Public Administration, the project being implemented in partnership by the Ministry of Development and the Municipality of Timișoara.
In a few years, Timișoara will have 44 articulated electric buses, with 15 fast-charging stations and 44 slow-charging stations. The electric buses cost about 30 million Euros, the Municipality covering 2% of the total amount. So, here is yet another investment that fosters a sustainable urban mobility by creating an efficient, ecologic and modern public transport system in Timișoara.
