An electrical filling station at the bus stop
(pdf , 1201.27 kb)
For the first time in Switzerland Geneva Public Transport (TPG) is using a battery-powered articulated bus on city passenger transport routes. Propulsion is provided by a small, and therefore lightweight battery, which is charged frequently over short periods throughout the journey, whenever the bus halts to pick up or set down passengers. The electricity used to operate the innovative e-buses comes from renewable sources.
