In October 2023 CarMedialab (belonging to INIT Group) has recently signed a cooperation with Optibus: together, the two companies will introduce to the market an end-to-end EV management solution “that enables smarter charging and higher-quality, cost-effective EV networks”. Another cooperation is in force with volytica diagnostics. Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr GmbH and LVB in Leipzing are among the customer of CarMedialab smart charging solution.
TMB has set a goal of achieving 25% of its fleet with zero emissions by 2024. TMB 2025 Strategic Plan aims also to achieve that by 2025 65% of displacements in Barcelona are made by public transport, in front of private vehicles. Still according to the plan, 508 new energy buses will be incorporated, of which 233 will be electric and 46 hydrogen.
TMB operates two transport networks – the bus network and the subway network – as well as several leisure transport services. With a fleet of over a thousand vehicles and more than 100 routes, the bus network covers over 900 km between Barcelona and the ten cities in the metropolitan area. The goal of this contract is to enable higher efficiency of charging processes of TMB e-buses.
