  • Last-mile bus pilot project with an autonomous vehicle in the Zona Franca industrial area
  • Incorporation of 508 new clean technology buses, 233 of which will be electric and 46 hydrogen buses
  • Commitment to green hydrogen, driving the construction and commissioning of a hydrogen plant open to public use in the Zona Franca area
