Biogas from municipal waste is the Stockholm transport authority’s preferred fuel for the future of buses in their city. They’re aiming for a carbon neutral public transport system by 2025.
It featured in a recent advertising campaign on the buses, billed “Thanks for the Food”, which said:
Thank you for eating cannelloni and gravadlax last week, because what you flushed down the toilet now fuels this bus.
The number of cars in Stockholm works out at 402 per thousand people, compared to 459 per thousand in the rest of Sweden. People don’t need to drive because the city has a public-transport system that works.
Auckland has 665 cars per thousand people, 65% more than Stockholm. People do need to drive because the city has a public-transport system that doesn’t work. Give Russel more muscle to get Auckland moving, sustainably.
