Good news for bus travellers around Fez. The roll-out of new blue buses has begun and already many of the older polluting buses have been retired.
There have been a number of civic improvements in the last few months with new rubbish bins throughout the Medina and the installation of security cameras in strategic areas.
The new blue buses have been greeted with enthusiasm, but as one woman told The View from Fez, "I saw this blue thing and thought I had missed my usual bus."
Did she like the new colour?
"It looks good, but the important thing is it comes on time."
There are still a lot of old buses on the roads and it is hoped they will soon be retired.
