    Back in 2013 the ‘Syndicat des transports d’Île-de-France’ (STIF) decided to implement an ecological transition for bus routes in Ile-de-France. The ambition: to move towards electric and Bio Gas technology. STIF asked RATP to stop purchasing 100% diesel buses and actively engage in an acquisition strategy to reduce emissions by 50% by mid 2016.

    Fast forward to today and we are on the verge of seeing the first fleet of electric buses operating in Paris. BlueBus, a subsidiary of Bolloré is providing a fleet of 10 buses which will become operational in early 2016 and mark a first in Europe for a fleet of this magnitude.

    Bus route 341 (Charles de Gaulle –Etoile / Clichy / Porte de Clignancourt) was chosen as the test route as the bus station at Belliard has the existing facilities in place to support the transition, currently used for minibus services. Two other routes will be tested, routes 21 and 147 with other technology once line 341 has transitioned.
