The greening of transport is an essential element for Hungary to fulfill the EU’s goal of being climate neutral by 2050, Péter Kaderják, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Policy, emphasized at the handover of an electric bus in Debrecen this past September.
Now, the Green Bus program has arrived at its third stop: Nyíregyháza. Residents can try out the electric buses—far cleaner and quiet—free of charge for a month when traveling in the Szabolcs County capital, the state secretary said.
Péter Kaderják noted that under the Green Bus program, which is part of Hungary’s climate and nature protection action plan, the government is spending HUF 36 billion on environmentally friendly vehicles in major cities.
The goal is for buses with zero or low emissions to carry passengers in settlements with a population of over 25,000.
