Government to introduce electric buses soon

The Akufo-Addo government plans to introduce buses powered by compressed natural gas and electricity as part of efforts to reduce air pollution on the roads in the country.

The buses which have been descibed as environmentally-friendly are expected to phase-out the operations of urban buses popularly called ‘trotro’ that use dirty fossil fuels such as diesel and petrol.

Speaking at a round table discussion,the deputy minister of Transport, Daniel Titus Glover, said electric mobility was a promising technological solution to addressing climate change pollutants, and, therefore, called on investors and interested parties to partner the government in rolling out the initiative.
