GLENVEAGH National Park is to see the arrival of the first two electric buses in Ireland.
A contract was signed with commercial vehicle distributor Harris Group to supply the two electric buses, which will service Glenveagh.
The signing was announced by Minister for Rural & Community Development Michael Ring and Minister for Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan.
Confirmation was welcomed by Minister for Education Joe McHugh.
“I am delighted by the announcement,” Deputy McHugh said.
The project is co-funded by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Fáilte Ireland and the Department of Rural And Community Affairs under the Rural Regeneration Development Fund.
Deputy McHugh said: “The new buses will be the first of its type to enter usage in the Irish transportation network and supports the Government’s aims to reduce emissions.
The introduction of these electric buses follows on from the successful introduction of e-charging points for members of the public in Glenveagh National Park in 2018.”Tags:
