While UITP welcomes the intention to promote clean and even zero-emission buses, the revision of the Clean Vehicles Directive will place a huge economic burden on the public transport sector, cities and regions - in its position paper, UITP therefore calls for
realistic targets and for clarity about who will cover the additional costs.

In April, UITP published a detailed position paper on the Commission proposal to revise the Clean Vehicles Directive 2009/33/EU.

The paper highlights aspects not sufficiently covered by the legislative proposal, such as the full costs for the public transport sector, which – beyond the vehicles – include the set-up of charging/refuelling infrastructure, modifications of the bus depots and maintenance workshops, as well as the training of staff.
