BYD has delivered the first electric bus fleet for public transport in the Caribbean.

BYD, Megapower and the Barbados Transport Board launched 33 new electric buses on to the Bajan streets, which represents one of the largest public transport systems per capita in the Americas.

Additionally, two more buses will arrive by this December as part of the Barbados National Climate Change Plan, which has been designed to achieve the island nation’s goals for 100% renewable energy and carbon neutrality by 2030.

The tender process was launched in August, 2019 by the Transport Board for pure electric, ten-metre buses, to provide new technology and sustainable transport solutions to Barbados.

BYD taxis and buses currently operate in more than 300 cities in 50 countries and regions.
