CIVITAS WEBINAR - Clean buses for your city

27/02/2014

The CIVITAS Thematic Group Collective Passenger Transport organised a CIVITAS WEBINAR on Thursday 27th February 2014 at 15.00 CET.

The Bus system is a key element of every public transport network all over the world. By choosing a cleaner bus option local decision makers can contribute to the decarbonisation of the urban transport and improvement of the air quality in their cities. In order to reduce emissions from buses it is possible to act on the improvement of the vehicle technology, act on powertrain or consider alternative fuels to be used to propel the vehicle.

The webinar presented and discussed the new CIVITAS Policy Note “Smart choices for cities - Clean buses for your city” as well as the report “Clean Buses – Experiences with Fuel and Technology Options” released by the European project Clean Fleets. Apart for presenting technology and fuel options, the webinar highlighted some practical city experiences in running and operating clean buses: together with the cities participating in the Clean Fleets project, also the CIVITAS demonstrative city Gdynia presented its experience in the trolleybus system.

The webinar addressed in particular the following questions:

  • Why do municipalities need to consider cleaner options for buses?
  • What are the options available and which energy source/technology should be chosen?
  • What are the costs, emissions and other advantages/disadvantages of the different options?
  • Short term, medium term and long-term investment decisions
