About the project
All public transport in Oslo and Akershus will run on renewable energy in the future. This means an ambitious transformation of the bus and boat fleets in the region. Ruter's ambition is to quickly implement the solutions that we believe are the best in a long-term perspective. Currently, our view is that electrical busses and boats are especially promising. Ruter is therefore looking into testing a large number of electric busses and associated infrastructure in regular service during 2016-20. We are now initiating a collaborative phase where we identify partners and concretize our ambitions and plans for testing of electric buses.

The diagram above illustrates Ruter’s prognosis for developments in its bus fleet in the years ahead. Biodiesel may be important in a transition phase, depending on how rapidly other solutions can be brought into use. In the long run, electric power looks most promising.
