As of spring 2026, all buses in Stockholm’s city centre and several of the surrounding municipalities will run entirely on electricity. One third of SL bus fleet (around 800 buses) will be converted to zero emission drives by then, is reported on trade media

There are currently only 29 electric buses in SL’s service, but this autumn another 190 will be put into service by Keolis in Solna, Sundbyberg, Sollentuna and Bromma (where also a batch of Ebusco 3.0 vehicles has been ordered). Next winter there will be another 200 electric buses in Nacka, Värmdö, Huddinge, Botkyrka and Söderort, including some Solaris Urbino Electric 15 LE for regional operations. Charging infrastructure supplier Ekoenergetyka has recently announces it will provide up to 140 chargers for electric buses to Nobina. They’ll be installed within 4 bus depots in Stockholm

Three public transport tenders coming

Around 380 new electric buses will be deployed in Stockholm from August 2026, as part of three major bus service tenders that SL will soon launch.

One of the contracts to be tendered covers Järfälla and Upplands-Bro, where the current contract expires in August 2026. Today, the service is run by Nobina. The second tender concerns bus services in Södertälje and Nykvarn. Here, too, the current agreement expires in August 2026. Third tender concerns bus services in Stockholm city centre and on Lidingö, currently run by Keolis, writes the Swedish trade publication.
