Progress on low-emission buses
Suppliers of low-emission buses have been asked to submit bids for vehicles for Bermuda.
The Ministry of Tourism and Transport and the Department of Public Transportation issued a request for proposals for “appropriately sized, accessible, and low-emissions buses” for the island.
The RFP specified two sizes of bus, and electric, diesel and hybrid diesel-electric vehicles will all be considered.
The request came after the DPT teamed up with American sustainability group the Rocky Mountain Institute to carry out a feasibility study on the reduction of the carbon footprint of the public transportation fleet.
A transport ministry spokesman said: “The findings were encouraging and highlight the opportunity to acquire buses that meet local regulations and customer needs, while being both environmentally and financially sustainable.”
The RFP document is on the government website and the closing date for submissions is September 16.
