Škoda E’CITY starts city trails


The City of Prague (DPP) will deploy Škoda E’CITY electric buses on three bus routes 154, 213 and 124 on weekends. Prague is the first city in which the new Czech electric bus has begun to operate. The remaining 13 vehicles will be taken over by the DPP at the beginning of February this year, and they will be gradually return to service. As a result, DPP saves around 252,000 litres of diesel per year and emits approximat­ely 714 tonnes less CO2. It is yet another DPP contributi­on to the developmen­t of more ecological­ly friendly public transporta­tion and the fulfilment of Prague’s climate commitment goal. “As part of the gradual electrific­ation of bus lines, we plan to purchase up to 100 e-buses and 70 battery trolley buses over three years,“announced Petr Witowski, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of DPP.
