Egged, which operates in the public transport sector, has chosen BYD as its supplier and has been a Chinese brand customer since 2017. In the past, Egd has also ordered 24 electric buses in its fleet, which are currently operating in Haifa and Jerusalem. The order will further strengthen the city’s electric transport fleet.

We are confident that it will provide pure electric buses so that the traffic will be reliable, safe and comfortable for the passengers. “
