Update on CITCO’s Plan for Electric Bus

In June of this year, the Government of Belize will receive the first fleet of electric buses and e-taxis from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), according to Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner. The initiative, which is being funded by the European Union through the Belize City Council, seeks to improve the city’s transportation sector. Wagner says that the project is being finalized and the council is meeting with the Ministry of Transport to determine the bus routes and fares. 

Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “The project is an EU funded project. It’s a grant fund being implemented through UNDP. UNDP has since sent out the procurement of the buses and we already have in place the individual who will be leading the development of the transport app. We are expecting those buses to be here in June. And so we will be very active in establishing the route. We’ll be very active in ensuring that the streets that that bus will run on are in a very decent condition and we’ll ensure that we get the bus stops on the route retrofitted and put in a good standing where it is able to provide the wifi services to those commuters.”
