Eight Spanish buses, „Castrosua City Versus Citelis CNG”, to be operated in Panevėžys have already arrived in Lithuania. In the meantime, when waiting for the new buses to come, residents of Panevėžys installed a compressed natural gas fueling station. One, natural-gas and electrically driven Spanish bus, „Castrosua Tempus Hybrid”, acquired for the pollution permits sold to Spain by Lithuania, arrived to Panevėžys at an earlier date.
Panevėžys is the third city in Lithuania after Vilnius and Kaunas, having received the new Spanish buses using compressed natural gas and the fifth city in the country with already operating compressed natural gas fueling stations. In Lithuania, compressed natural gas fueling stations are operating in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipėda, Šiauliai and Panevėžys.
