With 50 electric buses added to route 516, the introduction of the newly arrived 100 vehicles of this type into the system will be completed.
The route, which connects 12 communes on the route, which runs from Penalolen to Maipu, is one of the longest at present with electric cars. It should be noted that there were already two buses on it, which made the trip more than a year ago.
"These buses will provide better service, not only because they do not emit noise or vibration, but also because they have different attributes, such as Wi-Fi, air conditioning, universal access, safe cabins for drivers, soft seats and more comfortable location, ”he said. In this regard, the Minister of Transport Gloria Hutt.
It is worth noting that other routes that have already received this type of cars are 507 s and 519. These trips were made between Peñalolen and Santiago Centro.
This activity also allowed the opening of a second terminal, located in Maipu, which has 37 power stations, which will be added to 67, already operated by Metbus along with BYD and Enel X in Peñallolen.
This constitutes a load center with 100 power stations to provide all electrical resistors.
