With most metropolitan areas targeting zero-emission environments, an increasing number of cities and transport companies are considering a fully-electric solution for their urban bus network. In this context, the UITP Centre for Training designed a training programme on Electric Buses. The course offers a comprehensive overview of the electric solution for urban bus networks, from the setting of a city strategy, the choice of technology, the procurement of buses, all the way to the implementation and operation of the system.
