The Time is Now

With environmental degradation escalating and poor air quality in our cities reaching critical levels, decarbonising transport has become one of the greatest challenges of our time.

Fossil fuels must be reduced considerably and rapidly for the planet to stay below the 2°C target set in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.

Electrification is currently the most viable way for bus operators to achieve zero emissions and with more than 3 million buses in operation across the globe, imagine the difference transitioning even a percentage of these vehicles to electric would make!
