The Spanish Minister of Mobility and Housing, Marc Pons, and the General Director of Mobility, Jaume Mateu, have met with representatives of the Balearic Business Federation of Transportation (FEBT) in a first contact to hear needs of the sector and explain the first initiatives that will be carried out.
The Minister has advanced to the FEBT the intention to call aid for an amount of 2 million euros – from the Sustainable Tourism Tax – to facilitate the acquisition of natural gas vehicles or the change of engine of the current before the end of this year. The vehicles that could be eligible for this assistance would be mainly discretionary buses.
