Movia will present results and experiences from the first full-scale tender processes concerning 20 electric buses in the City of Roskilde, and 48 electric buses in the capital area of Copenhagen along with expectations for future tenders. The service in Roskilde will begin in April 2019, and in the central Copenhagen in December 2019. The City of Copenhagen has decided that all their buses must be electric or similar (zero-emission) by 2025, whenever possible.
