Fuel choices for public transport - Environmental demands and efficiency

A first uitp position paper on fuel choice was published in september, 2000. Since then the
debate has intensified with an increased number of alternatives now available and a greater global focus on fossil fuel supplies.

It is necessary therefore to update uitp’s position with new elements and recommendations, taking into consideration the views of the different actors: organising authorities, operators, the bus and fuel industries as well as the general public. This paper will complement a uitp position paper on climate change.

The report on “clean fuels for road public transport”, published in 2005 by uitp, is taken as
a reference for the purpose of this update. Uitp recognizes and thanks the valuable input from its members who contributed to that publication and to updating this position paper.
