News: Tel Aviv invests in charge as you drive electric roads

Travel Food People | 20 September 2020

Charging electric vehicles in a city can be an inconvenience but a pilot programme in Tel Aviv might offer a solution. The city is working on the implementation of electric roads that can wirelessly charge public transport. In an initial stretch of road about half a kilometre long, new buses will be able to recharge by receiving energy from an electricity grid under the asphalt. If successful, there are plans to roll this out city-wide, potentially eliminating the need for endless charging stations or terminals. “We have no doubt that if the wide-scale experiment is successful, it will not only benefit the public but also save resources and improve the operational efficiency of public transport,” says Meital Lehavi, deputy mayor for transportation in the city. “And maybe even a new world-class method of electrification will emanate from Tel Aviv.”
