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.
