ElectriCity Gothenburg

Gothenburg is currently the scene of ElectriCity – an exciting cooperative venture bringing together industry, research and society in the development and testing of solutions for next-generation sustainable public transport. Quiet, exhaust-free buses that pick up passengers indoors and are powered by electricity from renewable sources. Join us for a ride!

The testing and evaluation of electric bus operations is a central part of ElectriCity, which since 2015 has been running electrified buses in demo traffic on route 55 in Gothenburg. In June 2018, regular traffic with electrified buses will expand in Gothenburg. Two prototype all-electric articulated buses will be tested on part of route 16, which has frequent departures and carries a large number of passengers. The demo buses run on renewable electricity and are extremely energy-efficient, quiet and entirely emission-free. On board the buses, passengers have free access to the latest technology. The bus stop at Teknikgatan on Lindholmen is indoors. Quiet and emission-free public transport can operate in areas currently closed to traffic, thus opening up new scope for planning in cities and towns.
