At the PRIMOVE media event, which took place on May 31, the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development announced funding for an electric bus project in the city of Braunschweig, Germany, where Bombardier will apply its emission-free PRIMOVE solution in partnership with the local transport operator Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG. This initiative represents Bombardier’s first PRIMOVE bus project for passenger operation and marks a significant leap forward in bringing clean e-mobility solutions to urban areas.
As of June 2012, Bombardier will cooperate with the city of Braunschweig and the local operator Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG to turn a section of the bus network into an eco-friendly electric route. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development. The programme is scheduled to begin immediately with two buses operating with PRIMOVE technology on a 12 km route.
