The Australian bus maker BusTech Group and Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) have inked a contract to test the functioning of an environmental, zero-emission electric bus in Dubai’s arid climate. During the trial run, cutting-edge technologies to enhance customer service will also undergo testing. This will enable the electric bus to serve as a smart support totally connected with Dubai’s sustainable public transport system.

The evaluation will also consider the bus’s benefits and performance as well as the feedback from drivers and passengers in order to continuously identify areas for improvement. RTA and the Department of Transport and Main Roads Queensland Government came together to sign this first ever agreement between them. The ultimate aim of this Australia based company is to carry out the harmonious relation between both parties. This can be a reason for an increase in the demand and supply of electric and hybrid vehicles. An improving energy-efficient facilities, upgrading streetlights, and reducing waste can be a secondary subject to focus on. It also aims to modify its buildings to achieve carbon neutrality in line with Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050.

Sustainable And Environment-Friendly Public Transport Is A Great Initiative
Launching this initiative with a rewarding aspect invites a lot of the crowd in Abu Dhabi to invest themselves in an activity.
Travelling by bus is already more ecologically friendly than taking a cab or driving a vehicle. The programme came into effect in collaboration with the Environment Agency of Abu Dhabi (EAD), the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre “Tadweer,” and “DGrade.” The EAD is aiming to implement an integrated empty plastic bottle return network in important places. It is also promoting initiatives to collect bottles from households by offering incentives. Dubai has announced a plastic bag fee, which will go into effect this summer. This will encourage people to use fewer single-use plastic bags, as well as free water bottle refill stations across the city.
