The modern society development involves new and diverse issues considering urban environmental pollution. Traffic generated sound and vibration are two upto- date urban environmental pollution causes besides air and water pollution ones. Public transportation in metropolitan areas is a major and constant all levels environmental pollution cause. Electric engines as an alternative to internal combustion ones could reduce the air pollution caused by urban public transportation.
