The aim of the project is to ensure the use of environmentally friendly public transport and increase the number of passengers in environmentally friendly public transport in the Valmiera city route network. When implementing the Project, a new, environmentally friendly, electric bus will be purchased for passenger transportation in the city of Valmiera. The use of an electric bus will ensure not only a reduction in harmful emissions (CO, HC, NOx, PM, CO2, etc.) and noise levels in the city, but will also ensure a reduction in the use of fossil fuels.
Total investment: 550 500.00 €. EU investment: 467 921.00 € (85,0%).
The project does not mention the charging infrastructure, which suggests that it will be provided separately from the bus, which may cause unnecessary problems during the operation of the electric bus. Especially considering that it will be the municipality's first such bus.
