ELCHE city hall will use part of a €4 million European Union subsidy to buy eight electric buses.

There will be a further outlay on a liquid gas refuelling station at the municipal bus service’s garage and equipping buses with a digital system for paying by bank card or mobile.

“All of this will help to improve the municipal bus service, making it faster and more efficient,” said city hall’s spokesman Hector Diez.

The subsidy came from the EU’s Next Generation fund’s allocation to Spain, introduced to offset the immediate economic and social damage resulting from the Covid pandemic.
