Sun Moon Lake aims to introduce electric-powered buses in October

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Top tourist attraction Sun Moon Lake aims to become the country's first scenic area to use only green tourist buses with the introduction of three electric-powered buses in October, transportation officials said Saturday.

The buses will replace the three diesel buses running in the area to promote low-carbon travel, officials said.

The area has also introduced 35 electric cars for rent at low prices since April last year, providing rides to nearly 10,000 people as of September, according to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.

Since over 90 percent of those users previously relied on their own vehicles to get around the lake area, the plan has cut around 11,300 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions, the ministry said.
