TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY: Tindo, the Solar-powered Bus!
Posted By Jorge Chapa On December 18, 2007 @ 2:15 pm In Green Transportation,TransportationTuesday | 16 Comments
Solar-powered mass transportation? It’s no longer a dream! Tindo , a solar-powered electric bus, was introduced just last week in the city of Adelaide in Australia. The best part? It’s free to ride the supercute, supersolar Tindo.
By having a fully solar-powered bus, Adelaide has created something that other cities should follow. Here’s hoping that Tindo does not remain a one-off model, but becomes the future of mass transportation. And did we mention that it was free to ride?
“Tindo is at the cutting edge of sustainable solar energy technology – using the power of the sun to drive a commuter transport vehicle which operates with zero tailpipe emissions, and is also fully carbon neutral.” said Lord Mayor Michael Harbison.
