Mobility Measure

Electric car rental connecting the Limassol area to the airports and port

Implementing sustainable mobility

The available options for commuting from the airports, port to the Limassol tourist area are limited to taxis, rented cars and airport shuttles that operate on specific timetables.

How did the measure progress?

In collaboration with car rental companies and their association, an organised effort is being made to increase the number of e-vehicles available for rent, connecting the Limassol area with airports and the port. Meetings have taken place with several car companies to increase the number of electric vehicles available for rent.

New EV-Charging stations have been mapped out in collaboration with the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC). Seven new stations have been added in the region and its main getaways. At least three more will be installed by EAC by the end of 2018 in Limassol. Four shelters for EV charging stations have been purchased. 

Maps (2,000) with the EV-charging station locations have been designed and distributed at local events, hotels and tourist info offices.
