Title: Bio-fuel strategy in Burgos
During the past two years under the auspices of the CiViTAS project and with the initiative of the city management of Burgos (Spain), an ambitious and comprehensive strategy was established to convert the city fleet (public buses, police & fire department vehicles, trash trucks and other trucks) into clean vehicles that use only bio-fuels (biodiesel and compressed natural gas). Furthermore, buses were equipped to accommodate handicapped persons. Thus the city management serves as a good example by using fuels with lower pollution and emissions and thus reducing the environmental pollution in the city.
