Successful year for Gothenburg’s electric bus service
After one year of electric bus service on route 55 in Gothenburg, it is clear that the expectations have been surpassed by a wide margin. The buses and bus stops received a high rating by passengers and drivers alike, and the technology worked very dependably. Over the past year the service has carried about 1.2 million passengers. In time for the first anniversary of the electric bus route, global ICT provider Ericsson is now joining the ElectriCity partnership.Traffic on route 55 in Gothenburg began in June 2015 and the green electric buses soon became a common sight on the urban scene.
