Bus Tender Structure

November 2018

The UITP Bus Tender Structure Report represents some of the latest work from the UITP Bus Committee. Under the joint lead of the Bus Committee, Vehicles and Equipment Industry Committee and Public Transport Authority Committee, a working group was established to undertake a detailed exercise to update and expand our previously published guidance document for tendering buses and related services, published in 2009, in order to ensure that it adequately covers the evolving introduction of electric buses. The new Report also reflects more general changes in the sector, thereby ensuring that the document remains credible and of value to all participants.

The Report contains a comprehensive and dedicated Annex IV on Environmental Calculations for the calculation of Fuel Consumption, CO2 and regulated pollutants for 15 different bus propulsion energies. These figures can be used on the basis of comparisons at the tender stage. This opens up possibilities for decreasing costs whilst maintaining quality for all the parties involved.

The full document is free only to members involved in the working group for this publication. It is otherwise available for purchase for UITP Members (80 euros) and Non-members (160 euros).
