Green Vehicles Set for Use During Universiade
Electric charging stations for vehicles have been officially placed into operation at Shenzhen Bay Checkpoint Square. The city’s electric vehicle promotion office said that there are a total of 57 charging stations for electric buses and nearly 2,000 new energy buses to be placed in service before the Universiade begins.
To help promote a low carbon and green Universiade, new energy buses will be used to service athletes, coaches and participants to various venues in the city. The new and renovated charging stations are located near 44 Universiade venues and cover 77 bus routes for the buses. 50 taxis and 250 electric buses are being placed near the venues and an additional 40 buses are being used to service the athletes, reporters and officials.
To distinguish these buses from the other buses is a sticker that bears the name Universiade New Energy Bus on the bus windshields. To help promote low carbon commuting among its residents, Shenzhen police have placed 40 promotion centers all throughout the city that will help encourage people to leave their vehicles at home.
