Malmö , SMILE

In the middle of August the first new city buses out of 180, were seen on the streets of Malmö. This Civitas SMILE measure will be finalized by the summer of 2007.

The first 13 buses were put into circulation in mid-August 2006. All of them, both new and those renovated have alcohol-locks, air-conditioning as well as surveillance cameras to decrease vandalism and crime. Out of the 180 buses, 111 are completely new and 69 have been renovated. They all run on gas, which will decrease emissions compared to diesel driven buses and improve the urban environment.
