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. In this context, the UITP Academy designed this online training programme 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 procurement and the implementation and operation of the system.
