The city of Tel Aviv, in collaboration with the Dan Bus Company and Israeli company ElectReon, is installing the world’s first urban street that can charge specially equipped electric busses while they’re in motion. Although the initial section of the charging-enabled roadway is fairly short — about half a mile — the pilot program will be expanded if the experiment is successful.
Quote: “Our strategic action plan to prepare for climate change has placed the fight against pollution at the top of the municipality’s environmental agenda,” Ron Huldai, the city’s mayor, said in a press release. “If the pilot is successful, we will evaluate — together with the Ministry of Transportation — its expansion to additional locations in the city.”
