posted on 06/12/2016: 1373 views



In a significant step towards building a low carbon footprint city, Dubai South will bring out its first E-bus by early next year.

An agreement in this regard was signed today with Transit Australia Group (TAG), Australian mass transit company, in the presence of Ahmed Al Ansari, Acting CEO, Dubai South and Michael McGee, CEO, TAG.

"The signing of today's agreement marks an important step in the relationship between Dubai South, the Queensland Trade Commission and Transit Australia Group. It's also a step closer in fulfilling our ambitious aim of building a sustainable urban destination with technology, innovation, and smart planning at its core. At Dubai South we are pioneering an ambitious smart city transformation guided by people's happiness. The aim is to build a smart city that enables its people to do smart things with minimum ecological impact and the environmentally friendly e-bus is a positive step in that direction," Al Ansari said.

"Dubai South is a truly incredible urban transformational project. It is a visionary project, with a 50-year horizon. It is a great honour to be working in partnership with the Dubai South team to help strategically plan the mass transit system. Our environmentally friendly electric bus is the future of public transport. Australia has an opportunity to be a world leader and cut environmental pollution at the same time," Michael McGee added.

The zero-carbon bus is part of the next generation of mass transit vehicles and is said to cost 80 percent less to maintain than a standard diesel bus. Pegged as a game changer for public transport, the new bus utilises advanced battery and regenerative braking technology.

The environmentally friendly bus can be charged at the depot and while in service, and has a range of at least 300km and capacity for 50 passengers. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/economics/1395304260567.html
