Cleaner public transport beckons with new project
Buses belching clouds of smoke could be a thing of the past within the next few years if a pilot project
to prove the viability of electric buses delivers positive results.
By the end of 2025, South Africa’s first electric commuter buses could be on the roads of Tshwane and
eThekwini municipalities as part of pilot project funded by the Global Environmental Facility and
managed by the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) and the South African Natiional Energy
Development Institute (SANEDI).
