News on environmental zones and air pollution
The city of Kiel wanted to avoid diesel driving bans and prefer to completely renew its bus fleet. This measure has not yet been completed: particularly dirty buses are still in service, according to Deutsche Umwelthilfe. Even worse: 49 of the 86 buses that do not comply with the Euro 6 standard are not to be converted and will continue to run until new electric buses are delivered. This would partly mean until 2021.
