The 120 Hyundai buses (100 Super Aero City & 20 County) powered by natural gas, which arrived at the port of Ensenada last February and were delivered symbolically during AltFuels Mexico 2019, were recently put into operation. The vehicles are operated by the transport company Traxión and will transfer daily more than 9,200 workers to six Hyundai plants located in Tijuana and Rosarito.
The launch took place in Playas de Rosarito, with the presence of authorities from the government of Baja California, Hyundai Engineering Mexico, Hyundai Translead, NeoHyundai and Grupo Traxión.
With an investment of almost 18 million dollars and a strong commitment to sustainability, the new fleet will reduce 87% of carbon monoxide and non-methane hydrocarbon emissions, 41% of nitrogen oxide and 85% of methane. In addition, the emission of smoke is eliminated by 100% and the noise pollution is reduced by 70%.
Tijuana and Rosarito were chosen for the start-up of these buses due to the growth they have registered so far this year and the projection of economic development, according to the National Chamber of Commerce (Canaco).
