German town tests wireless bus charging

Just like electric cars, electric buses will need specialized infrastructure to be successful. But don’t expect to see a plug-in charging station at every bus stop.
For electric buses used for public transit, which don’t have time to wait for a full charge, wireless shots of energy could be the answer. Bombardier Transportation, the rail arm of the Canadian aerospace and transportation company, will test its wireless electric bus charging technology over the next year in Mannheim, Germany.
