Rēzekne was the first municipality in the Baltics to use electric buses, and thus attracted the attention of other municipalities. The good experience certainly encouraged other municipalities to follow suit. It is expected from Rēzekne that the bus fleet will continue to be supplemented with emission-free buses.
