In order to meet their transport emissions reduction targets, many cities around the world are setting up specific strategies by considering electric mobility, and more specifically electric buses, for their public transport networks.
UITP has published the UITP Policy Brief "The Impact of Electric Buses on Urban Life" which details the benefits electric buses can bring to cities, and to help better understand their various infrastructural impacts on urban spaces and space needs.
The policiy brief can be downloaded here: https://www.uitp.org/sites/default/files/cck-focus-papers-files/UITP-policybrief-June2019-V6 WEB - OK_0.pdf
Also the UITP will be setting off on a journey with “The Story of the Bus”. For the next three months UITP is inviting everyone to join th UITP as we get ‘busy with the bus’ by unveiling key sector publications and project news all the way to the 2019 International Bus Conference (Brussels, 21-23 October 2019).
UITP announces that with new innovations and developments, it will tell you exactly how they impact the sector when we make dedicated stops on our bus journey from now until we join forces with Busworld for the world’s biggest event on bus.
With each stop, you can follow the UITP bus as we launch four publications detailing the latest developments on global bus statistics, Bus Rapid Transit, trolleybus and the impact of electric buses on urban life.
