With more and more metropolitan areas targeting zero-emission environments, an increasing number of cities, transport authorities and operators are considering a fully electric solution for their urban bus network.
The TUMI E-Bus Mission will contribute significantly to the goal of creating sustainable urban transport systems. Air and noise pollution are among the most pressing problems in today’s cities. TUMI E-Bus Mission not only works to reduce these problems, but also strongly cuts down CO2-emissions created by urban transport systems. The TUMI E-Bus Mission cities will furthermore serve as role model cases for successful and largescale E-Bus adoption in other cities.
Until 2025, 500 cities will be inspired, and these actions will lead to the procurement of more than 100,000 e-buses, resulting in a reduction of more than 15 megatons of CO2 emissions. The increased demand for e-buses worldwide will accelerate the technology maturation and mass roll-out of the technology. The ambitious project was developed out of the Action towards Climate-friendly Transport (ACT)-Initiative, launched at the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in September 2019.
In this context, this online training programme designed on Electric Buses offering a comprehensive overview of the electric solution for urban bus networks: from the setting of a long-term city strategy in terms of energy transition to the definition of a charging strategy and the choice of technology and all the way to the planning, procurement, operation, and maintenance of the e-bus system.
