Many Polish cities are leaning towards eco-friendly ways of powering public transportation. This is not only due to the environmental trends but also economic reasons – as fuel prices continue to rise. Leading the way in these changes is Zielona Góra, boasting an impressive 65% presence of electric buses in its entire fleet. Zero-emission electric buses can also be found in Warsaw and Krakow.
Uneven level of electrification nationwide
While some cities are actively progressing towards electrifying at least part of their fleet, others, even large ones, often lag behind. Wrocław, Bydgoszcz, Olsztyn, and Białystok still cannot boast a single vehicle of this type. However, much can change in this matter in the near future. In the case of Bydgoszcz, it is known that such plans will have to be postponed – partly due to a lack of financial resources. Among the cities and regions that will acquire new fleets in a short period of time are the Upper Silesian-Zagłębie Metropolis, Częstochowa, Krakow, and Warsaw.
