First step to use the funds of the Pnrr for sustainable mobility: the Council of Milan approved a resolution authorizing the submission of the application for access to the funds of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan to be subsequently allocated to Atm for the program of renewal of the bus fleet and related recharging infrastructure.
This is the 249 million euros of the Pnrr allocated to Milan to purchase, by June 2026, 350 new zero-emission buses, with electric or hydrogen power, used exclusively for local public transport and related infrastructure. These funds will allow Atm to arrive by 2026 with a total of 510 electric buses. In particular, the company has already planned to use 195 million euros for the purchase of electric buses, in addition to the 160 already in service on ten city lines, and the remaining 54 million for charging infrastructure.
These funds will allow Atm to continue with the “Full Electric” plan that foresees the complete renewal of the fleet of 1,200 vehicles by 2030, making it completely zero impact.
“The City of Milan, together with Atm – explains Arianna Censi, Councillor for Mobility -, is a candidate to become in less than a decade the city with zero emissions public transport. A fleet of all-electric buses will continue to guarantee the efficiency of the service, reducing emissions to zero. The green future of our city requires commitment from the Administration to achieve important goals. And the renewal of the Atm fleet is one of them”.
