At 08.28, the first passengers boarded the country’s first electric bus, which ran on line 31E from Grorud to Fornebu. They were able to sit on the quiet, emission-free bus to work for the first time on Thursday 21 December morning.


Nobina is the first in Europe to use Chinese-produced electric articulated bus. At the end of the year there will be delivery of another electric articulated bus from Chinese BYD. The two 18-meter busses will run on lines 31 and 31E, which is the country’s heaviest line of approx. 15 million customers a year and about 50,000 daily travelers.

“We look forward to gaining valuable experience with these climate-friendly and quiet buses. Line 31 will be the first line that gets such a concept in Norway.
