Affected by the Covid-19 epidemic, new energy buses with an operating mileage of less than 30,000 kilometers this year are still expected to receive operating subsidies.


Relevant experts have recommended that relevant departments further study the development of the epidemic situation and introduce new policies and measures for new energy bus operation subsidies, said Liu Zhenguo, director of the Comprehensive Transportation Research Center of the Academy of Sciences of the Ministry of Transport, at a bus development experience exchange meeting held on the 7th .


According to the previous policy requirements on new energy bus operating subsidies, the central government will provide operating subsidies for new energy buses with an annual operating mileage of not less than 30,000 kilometers (including 30,000 kilometers) and non-plug-in hybrid buses in accordance with the actual number of bus being promoted.


Liu said that during the epidemic, when urban buses were generally suspended or reduced in frequency, some cities with low intensity of new energy buses had the risk of not being able to obtain new energy operating subsidies because of their annual operating mileage. This will put public transportation companies under greater operating pressure.


Statistics from the Ministry of Transport show that as of the end of 2019, there were 693,300 buses and trams nationwide, an increase of 2.9% over the previous year. In terms of vehicle fuel type, diesel vehicles accounted for 17.4%, natural gas vehicles accounted for 21.5%, pure electric vehicles accounted for 46.8%, and hybrid vehicles accounted for 12.3%.
