Switch Mobility, a Hinduja Group company and the next-generation carbon neutral electric bus and light commercial vehicle manufacturer, has delivered six Switch Solo electric buses to Translink, Northern Ireland’s main provider of public transport. Four buses will run routes in the Coleraine area with the remaining two on a route taking passengers to the iconic Giant’s Causeway.
Mahesh Babu, Chief Executive Officer – Switch Mobility Ltd, said, ‘’With the UK electric bus market witnessing a steady growth, we are delighted to have delivered the recent order of Switch Solos to Translink. At Switch Mobility, we are committed to creating innovative and sustainable solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers. Our Switch Solo EV’s are testament to this, and we are delighted to see them join others already in service on the streets of Northern Ireland. We are grateful to Translink for their trust in our products, and services. This partnership is a testament to our shared vision of creating a greener and more sustainable future for all. We look forward to continue working with Translink and other customers to drive a positive change in the transportation industry’’.
Sarah Simpson, Translink Business Change Manager, said: “We’re making real progress on this important zero emissions project that will see new state-of-the-art mini bus battery electric vehicles (BEVs) enter passenger service on the Causeway Coast later this summer – the first zero emission buses to operate on the Translink Ulster bus network. This project supports our vision to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 and operate a net zero emissions fleet across Northern Ireland by 2040 - vital for tackling the climate emergency and driving change for a better quality of life for future generations. We’re pleased to work with SWITCH Mobility Ltd on this innovative project and look forward towel coming our customers on board these new zero emission mini buses in coming weeks.”
The Switch Solo is designed and developed utilising Switch’s global electric bus experience with variable seating layout and lengths making it suitable for urban, sub-urban and rural routes.
