This Dutch City Has Transformed Its Bus Stops Into Bee Stops
They also help capture fine dust, storage of rainwater and provide cooling in the summertime.
Recently Utrecht has also replaced diesel buses for electric buses – indeed the city aims to only operate CO2 neutral buses by 2028, which is less than 10 years away.
As well, Utrecht incentivises its bus drivers to adapt to a more “environmentally friendly” driving style. The buses register how efficient and comfortable each bus driver operates the bus, and based on how well they drive, they can win prizes.
The citizens of Utrecht are incentivized to transform their own roofs into green roofs too and can apply for special subsidies too!
We think this is such a great initiative and should be rolled out in many other cities and countries worldwide!
