In Europe, the transition towards clean and zero-emission technologies is now a reality for cities and bus operators, especially after the EC Clean Vehicles Directive entered into force in August 2021, setting mandatory targets for the procurement of new buses. Up to the challenge, the bus sector is demonstrating strong commitment to the decarbonisation goals and is embracing clean technologies and innovation whilst investing in substantial fleet renewal in many of our cities.
In this light, UITP is launching a new survey to collect data on energy transition plans and adoption of clean buses in Europe. The survey will be the basis for a new UITP report, aligned with the previous ASSURED Clean Bus Report released in March 2022, and its predecessor ZeEUS e-Bus Report#2 in October 2017.
In the upcoming publication, we will be featuring the vision, deployment plans and concrete actions of European Bus Operators and Transport Authorities, with the aim to understand the contribution of the bus sector in the face of energy transition and climate change.
