More cities sign onto the C40 Clean Bus Declaration

INTERNATIONAL

With the recent addition of Changwon, Hong Kong and Los Angeles, 26 cities have now signed on to the C40 Clean Bus Declaration, demonstrating the market potential for new bus technologies to manufacturers. Signatory cities will have over 175,000 buses in their fleet by 2020, and have committed to switching over 45,000 of these to low emission. If the clean bus goals of these 26 cities are reached, greenhouse gas savings would be almost 1.3 million tonnes per year, and if the cities manage to switch their entire bus fleet to low emission, the savings could be 2.8 million tonnes each year.
