Cleaner buses for the metropolis

#NIMES. Fifteen million were invested to renew part of the Tango bus network fleet. In the coming weeks, 39 so-called clean vehicles will be put into service on the metropolis' transport network, including 30 biofuel coaches, six biogas buses and three electric buses.

A renewal that has already been taking place for three years to meet two objectives: rejuvenate a "old and polluting park", believes Jean-Marc Campello, vice-president of the urban community in charge of mobility, but also to begin the energy transition of means of transport. Thus, of the 77 vehicles acquired since 2020, 63 of them are green energy. "This is a real turning point in transport policy", rejoiced Franck Proust, president of Nîmes Métropole, on the occasion of the presentation of these new vehicles. Which have been designed to offer additional comfort to users and drivers.
