• With this action, the M3 line operated by TGO DX will become one of the first public transport routes connecting with an FGC station to be offered on a fleet of electric vehicles. The new electric buses are scheduled to start running in spring 2022.
  • The action is part of TGO DX’s plans to continue improving sustainability and make progress in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. Likewise, the implementation of electric buses is part of the mobility decarbonisation policy promoted by the Government of Catalonia.

TGO DX’s M3 line, which connects the Olesa FGC station with the municipality of Esparreguera, will be offered on all-electric buses. The entry into circulation of the new vehicles, which is expected to take place during the spring of 2022, will represent a new step in TGO DX’s commitment to sustainability. With the electrification of the M3 line, we are continuing our journey to contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals included in the United Nations 2030 Agenda,” explained Carme Pros, CEO of TGO Dx. However, this action is part of a broader plan to progressively electrify our facilities and our fleet, with the aim of reducing the use of fossil fuel as much as possible”, she specified. The action has been made possible thanks to the signing of an agreement between TGO DX, the General Directorate of Transport and Mobility of the Generalitat de Catalunya and Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya.

Specifically, the agreement will allow the replacement of the two 10-metre diesel vehicles with which TGO DX currently provides the service with two all-electric buses. In addition, TGO DX will install electric vehicle charging stations in its depots, which will allow the overnight slow-charging batteries of the two new buses to be charged. With this action, TGO DX will be one of the first mobility operators in Catalonia to connect an FGC station with a fleet of fully electric vehicles. With data from 2019, TGO DX’s M3 line has an annual demand of 44,000 passengers

The progressive replacement of mechanically powered vehicles by electric vehicles is part of the government’s and TGO DX’s policy of decarbonising mobility as an essential factor in the fight against climate change. Likewise, this substitution will also contribute to an improvement in air quality and a reduction in noise pollution.
