City Sightseeing will be unveiling the world’s first low-floor electric-run open bus at World TravelMarket next week. The electric-motored buses use batteries and a small diesel engine, which is recharged when the bus brakes. Overall the buses reduce its fuel use by 30%.
“At City Sightseeing we care for the environment and are introducing a series of sustainable initiatives. We believe the introduction of hybrid buses to be one the most important,” said Enrique Ybarra, CEO of City Sightseeing. “We have identified several cities where operating hybrid buses could be the preferred option and with our partners ADLand UNVI we can deliver a realistic environmental alternative for these locations and their visitors”.
