ZEro Emission Urban bus Systems

Bringing electrification to the heart of the bus network

For the groundbreaking project ZeEUS, 40 partners led by UITP joined forces to extend the fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network. ZeEUS demonstrated the feasibility of several electric solutions for high capacity buses in live operational scenarios across Europe. With around 70 series and pre-series vehicles taking part in the ZeEUS demonstrations, a meaningful evaluation of the real impact of the electric solution on the operations was performed.

Aiming at facilitating the market uptake of electric buses, this analysis contributed to the development of tools to support decision makers on “if”, “how” and “when” to introduce electric buses in the core part of the bus network.

The ZeEUS Observatory closely followed the progress of bus system electrification in Europe. Through exchanges of experiences and knowledge, the Observatory provided a picture of the European electric bus market and contributes to its deployment strategies.
