The European Investment Bank is financing the modernization of Barcelona’s fleet of city buses by granting a €73.5 million loan that will help Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona put 254 new, safer, less polluting and more modern vehicles into service.
The new vehicles, most of which are hybrids and electric, will make it possible to improve the city’s air quality and the service provided to passengers. The project also will enable the creation of 1000 jobs during the construction phase of the new vehicles.
