First electric buses to appear in Minsk in December 2016

Sunny color for winter streets of Minsk: residents of the Belarus capital have decided on the future color of a new kind of metropolitan transport - electric buses.

These electric buses will appear in Minsk already in December 2016.

The electric buses will be like electric vehicles. They are powered by clean energy sources: a battery or a supercapacitor. The energy will be enough to cover about 12 kilometers.

Then they need to be recharged at special stations, which are equipped at the last stops.

Andrei Illarionov, Deputy Director of the state institution Metropolitan Transport and Communications:
Currently, the Internet voting is completed. Minskers have chosen yellow color. Further work on the launch of this type of transport is underway. At the initial stage, we plan to use only two electric buses.
