News on environmental zones and air pollution
The upcoming diesel driving bans in Frankfurt puts the city in trouble. 230 of the 340 buses in service (i.e. 2/3 of the fleet) do not comply with the Euro-6 standard and would be affected by the ban from 01.09.2019. In this case, the city has two options: to convert or replace the buses. The Land of Hesse is therefore putting pressure on the government to require car manufacturers to pay for the modernizations. An answer is expected before the end of the month.
