Lima’s first e-bus
is 12 meters long, can carry 80 passengers
and is run by the Allin Group
, one of the local operators of Lima’s public transit authority, Protransporte
. It will serve one of the city’s busiest routes, the so-called “Red Corridor”. Peru is following the best practices
already in place in other Latin American countries such as Chile, where the capital Santiago has 287 100% electric buses
served by eight electro terminals. Colombia is also working to install three charging infrastructures in the capital city of Bogotà for the use of 379 e-buses
(this is due for launch soon).
