First electric bus ready to roll

Oslo’s first all-electric bus is now being readied for some test runs between Mortensrud on the east side of the Norwegian capital and Vika near the western harbour area. Norway has long been a world leader in electric car use, and now that’s spreading to the public transport sector.

Website VårtOslo (Our Oslo) reports that Unibuss, which supplies bus tranport to the system, has taken delivery of the first of two so-called el-busser. They were due to be tested on Line 74 on Tuesday.

A total of six electric buses are expected to be in service in Oslo, all part of a test program organized by the mass transit system known as Ruter.
