Hybrid bus to be trialled

Thu, 05 Sep 2019

A hybrid bus is going to be trialled on the Island over the next two weeks.

The Mercedes Citaro will be used on a variety of routes, with and without passengers, to check its suitability on Manx roads, where journey times are often a lot shorter than in the UK.

The vehicle has a number of environmental benefits, including 25% better fuel economy, 90% fewer emissions and being much quieter.

The trial is taking place in support of the Isle of Man Government’s commitment to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
