This year, the State of Bavaria is investing around 95 million euros in the conversion of local public transport to climate-friendly drives and the expansion of the charging infrastructure.
More than 20 bus depots throughout Bavaria are to benefit by receiving a total of 400 climate-friendly buses and charging stations, is mentioned in a press note by Quantron AG.
On July 12, 2023, Bavaria’s Prime Minister Dr. Markus Söder and Bavaria’s Minister of State for Housing, Construction and Transportation, Christian Bernreiter, presented funding decisions for the conversion of public transport to climate-friendly drives to two companies from Munich and Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm.
During the event in Munich, the all-electric Quantron Cizaris 12 EV city bus was showcased as an example of sustainable passenger transport. The vehicle was officially handed over to the family-owned company Omnibus Amann e. K. in Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm as part of the event and will be used in regular service operations.
Andreas Haller, Founder and Executive Chairman of Quantron AG: “We are proud to be part of this forward-looking project and to contribute to reducing emissions in local public transport with our electric bus. The funding from the Free State of Bavaria is an important step in shaping the transport revolution.”
