The European Parliament’s environment committee has reached an agreement on the revision of the Clean Vehicles Directive (Brussels, October 10 2018).

While the mandatory procurement quotas continue to place the highest burden on the public transport sector, UITP welcomes the increased flexibility in the definition of which buses are considered as “clean”.

The committee’s report maintains the high level of ambition proposed by the Commission.

The mandatory procurement targets for the purchase, lease, rent, or hire-purchasing of “clean” buses go up to 50% for the first period until 2025, and up to 75% until 2030.
