Amsterdam scraps diesel buses

In 2025 Amsterdam will become the first city in the country to run a fully electric bus fleet.

The first batch of 40 buses will be replaced by electric vehicles in two years’ time, the Volkskrant reports. The ferries over the river IJ between the city centre and Noord will also be powered by green electricity.

‘This project means we are saying goodbye to symbolic behaviour and pilot projects,’ the city’s transport alderman Abdeluheb Choho told the Volkskrant.
