Bus Rapid Transit Zhengzhou is a modern bus-based mass transit system. The project features the largest fleet of hybrid and electric buses worldwide with more than 3.100 units. The project includes 100 km of bus-only lanes, an integrated smart ticketing system, and real-time information of customers.
Most of the buses are gas-electric plug-in hybrids including over 100 large battery-electric buses with an innovative automated battery interchange system. The project includes more than 100km of bus-only lanes, an integrated smart ticketing system, a central bus dispatch and real-time information of customers.
Even including carbon emissions from electricity production, hybrid and electric buses reduce greenhause gases emissions compared to conventional units by 40-60% whilst operating on zero emissions in the city center. The measures of the project allow for a mode shift from private vehicles and taxis towards public transport with a positive climate impact, improved local air quality, less traffic congestion, less time spent for commuting, and a reduced accident rate.
