The Municipality of Potenza will purchase ecological buses to add to the urban buses fleet in the next couple of months.
After a broad market research and survey in relation to filling stations for alternative fuels, Potenza decided to buy methane buses. The purchase of vehicles has been delayed because additional funds are to be added to the budgeted € 535.000 for the purchase of the buses. Thanks to this new contribution, the Municipality will introduce into the urban buses fleet more than 5 ecological buses. The Municipality is currently carrying out the necessary administrative procedures to enable the funds to become available. Some of the buses purchased will be used for the implementation of a Dial-a-Ride system operating on routes linking external districts to the town centre.
