The environment needs everyone to get involved
At Moventia, we are fully aware of how important it is to protect our natural resources and we are committed to protecting the environment, given that our own quality of life and that of our children depends on it.
At Moventia, we innovate by introducing clean technologies into mobility services and 15% of our buses are electric, hybrid or natural gas.
We are therefore experts in:
- Conservation systems to extend the useful life of vehicles
- Mid-life regeneration projects
- Implementation of driving supervision systems
- Consumption and emissions reduction audits and plans
- Feasibility studies on bus network hybridisation
- Waste reduction plans
- Fuel processing and management plans to increase efficiency
- Certifications related to quality and the environment
Moventis has implemented an awareness and technology improvement plan due to our concerns over energy saving, the reduction of gas emissions into the atmosphere and cost saving. The action plan to improve these three effects consists of: economic driving improvement courses; studies on the use of synthetic oils for engine lubrication in partnership with Mobil Spain; plant-based Diesel-Bi fuel demos; experimentation on the eco-bus with full electric traction and injection pump head correction.
Moventia has made a clear commitment by investing in the installation of solar panels at some of the group’s facilities in the two business divisions where this is possible in order to help reduce electricity costs and because they are clean, silent and environmentally friendly systems. Moventia began an ongoing improvement process in 2009 aimed at energy savings that remains ongoing today. Many actions have been taken within the group and in each business division over the years to uphold our respect for the environment and to improve our energy efficiency and costs.
Gas refuelling station in Montbéliard
Moventis has promoted the first compressed natural gas refuelling station in the Pays de Montbéliard region (France), with pumps for its own urban bus fleet and pumps for private use.
Bicycles, a mode of transport on the rise
The bicycle is a 100% sustainable means of transportation. At Moventis, we offer this service in various towns both nationwide and internationally. By using an app and after paying a fee, users can pick up and drop off a bicycle at any of the parking stations set up for this purpose.
Electric bicycles make up a part of the fleet
A 100% electric line
The university line in Pamplona, operated by TCC, is the first pantograph-based opportunity charging 100% electric line anywhere in Spain. Recharging takes place at the end of the line to make the most of the downtime between services.
The six new Vectia CAF ‘Veris.12 Fast Charge’ buses are 12 metres long by 2.55 metres wide. They are fitted with a double ramp (electric and manual) to enable wheelchair users to board the bus. A Wi-Fi network is also provided for on-board Internet connection.
Emovement is the driving force behind the emergence of electric cars in the Spanish market. The sale of these vehicles is one of the key measures aimed at slowing climate change. Based on the Comprehensive Electric Vehicle Plan, Emovement is committed to bringing a range of products to meet these needs into the Spanish market: cars (Reva), motorcycles (Vectrix) and vans (Beepo).
Moventia was a shareholder and driving force behind the first car sharing initiative in Catalonia, Carsharing, S.A. Avancar. Carsharing is a modern mobility concept that fosters the rational use of transportation and offers the chance to use a car whenever you need to without having to own one, thereby helping to reduce individual and social costs.
It offered its services from 2005 and was the first company to do so in Spain.
