'Environmentalist' passenger buses complying with the Euro 6 standard, produced by Chinese companies, started to carry passengers in Southern Cyprus. 155 buses named 'King Long' will provide public transportation services in Nicosia and Larnaca. In addition to the environmental friendliness of buses, the Southern Cypriot authorities draw attention to the “self-disinfecting” feature, which is especially preferred during the pandemic period.
"The new buses have increased security, including sterilization systems," said Aristotelis Savva, director of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Labor of the Southern Cyprus, who gave information to the Chinese Official Agency Xinhua. The fact that the buses disinfect themselves quickly makes public transportation much safer, especially during the pandemic period. ” Stating that 155 new buses increase the fleet quality and safety of their countries, Savva commented, "This shows a very serious development compared to other buses currently used."
Thanks to the mobile application, buses with WiFi and USB charging units will automatically operate the air conditioners according to the air temperature and adjust the degree, making the travels of the people and tourists of Larnaca, where the summer temperatures of 34 degrees centigrade, are better and healthier.
