UITP Academy is launching an online course on Electric Bus Operations & Maintenance, along with Shenzhen Bus Group (SZBG), an operator who has achieved full electrification. The course runs from 19 to 27 September and features 8 interactive online sessions.
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, UITP Academy and Shenzhen Bus Group (SZBG) designed this training programme on the operations of Electric Buses to offer a comprehensive overview on the operations, maintenance and asset management of electric buses. This training will give you an insight into urban bus networks, the importance of building a sustainable infrastructure, recent technologies, and using data for the operation, maintenance, scheduling and implementation of efficient timetables on city routes.
Shenzhen Bus Group (SZBG) is the largest and oldest public transportation operator in Shenzhen, China. After achieving full electrification, with 6,053 electric buses in 2018, SZBG has now become the largest new energy public transport operator in the world. SZBG has also been trialing electric self-driving buses on open and mix-traffic roads since 2017, with zero accidents to date.
The training and all training materials will be provided in English, and Simultaneous Interpretation (SI) from Chinese to English will be provided during this online training.
