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, four different online workshops designed on life cycle cost analysis, defining technical requirements, feasibility study to determine battery sizing, and assessment to evaluate of the cities readiness to deploy e-bus.

Course objectives

Aim of these workshops are to developed practical ability of the participant to do feasibility analysis, life cycle cost analysis, defining the specs for e-bus and assessing readiness to deploy e-bus system.

Reach your objectives:

  • Get general overview of TCO, LCC and feasibility analysis
  • Understand how to develop an operational and charging strategy by using the result of basic feasibility study
  • Understand the effects of operational characteristics to specs of procurements
  • Learn about procurements steps and benchmarking with different solutions
  • Discuss and learn what are the most critical performance criteria for you

A top-level methodology

  • Get inspired by our trainers, understand the main aspects of electric buses
  • Participate to interactive online sessions with introduction by course leaders, presentation by the trainer and open discussion with participants
  • Challenge your practical knowledge on the technology, the implementation, and the running of electric buses
  • Address the topic from an international perspective, enriched by different cultural approaches and points of views

UITP Training Programmes and all related processes are certified for ISO29990:2010 – the standard for learning services for non-formal education and training.

Who is it for?

  • Decision makers, top managements from PTA, PTO, Governments, Local Governments, Municipalities who wants to know policy drive and how to implement e-bus solutions
  • Project managers, engineers, and other professionals eager to learn more about the technology, the implementation, and the running of electric buses
  • People who would like to get generally informed about e-bus, technology, market, procurements and tendering, business model, planning, operations, and maintenance for e-bus
  • Staff from public transport operators or authorities planning to extend a fully electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network
  • All staff from all levels from related organizations and stake holders

Inspiring trainers

Our skillful trainers are international experts and professionals with extensive experience and knowledge in the development and application of Electric Bus operations.
