ElectriCity sustainable public transport

ElectriCity is a collaborative project and is a co-operation between the City of Gothenburg, the Volvo Group, Region Västra Götaland and others for sustainable public transport. The project involves a brand new bus route which started in 2015, serviced by electric buses that glide along noiselessly and pick up and drop off passengers indoors.

Three of the 15 buses will be completely electric-powered, the others will be around 80% electrically run. Above all this means lower emissions and less noise. For the Volvo Group the collaboration with the City of Gothenburg represents an opportunity to test new technology that could present brand new possibilities for public transport in the cities of the future. And for the City of Gothenburg it is important to contribute to sustainable development, and to develop services that can benefit residents. Passengers will benefit from the electric buses in several ways, such as the opportunity to have indoor bus stops and wireless services linked to them.
