Russian and Belarusian electric buses to be tested in Moscow
The electric buses are designed for people with impaired mobility, and the Belarusian ones have a bigger passenger capacity.

Two electric buses – LiAZ-6274 (Russia) and E433 (Belarusian plant Belkommunmash) – will be tested in Moscow in December. The relevant agreements were signed on Tuesday at the international exhibition ExpoCityTrans where the new buses were presented.

“Close cooperation with rolling stock producers is aimed at improving the quality of services for passengers. I am pleased to say that our joint work on the expert assessment of transport vehicles is producing results. Cooperation in testing transport allows us to offer passengers new modern types of rolling stock,” said General Director of Mosgortrans (Moscow public transport operator) Yevgeny Mikhailov.

LiAZ-6274 is produced by the Likino Bus Plant. The 20-seat bus for up to 86 passengers is an upgraded version of the low–floor LiAZ-5292.

The 38-seat E433 electric bus (Belarus) is also designed for people with impaired mobility and can hold 153 passengers.
