News on environmental zones and air pollution
The European Parliament and the EU Council have agreed on the new directive on clean vehicles. From 2025, public bus companies will have to renew their fleets so that zero and low emission vehicles represent 25% of the fleet. From 2030, the share will rise to 33%. Half of the target will also have to be met by zero-emission, that means 100% electric buses. But the targets depend on how wealthy the country is: they vary from 24% and 45% in 2025 and from 33% and 66% in 2030.
