Concluding the Clean Bus Europe Platform

The Clean Bus Europe Platform (CBEP) was an initiative under the European Commission's Clean Bus Deployment Initiative that aimed to support the deployment of clean bus technologies across Europe. 

The Platform brought together European cities, transport authorities and operators, together with relevant stakeholders like social dialogue partners, industry, financing and funding institutions, associations, etc. to boost and support the exchange of knowledge and expertise on clean bus deployment.  

After four years, the CBEP held its Final Event at the UITP Summit in Barcelona. The CBEP has facilitated exchange of knowledge between cities that are well progressed with clean bus deployment (Host Cities), and those who are yet to take the plunge (Target Cities).

Going beyond the Target Cities, the Platform has been a true reference point for the sector on clean bus activities, also through a valuable media collaboration with Sustainable Bus magazine.

“The CBEP has played a key role in boosting the uptake of clean buses all across Europe,” says Aida Abdulah, Head of the Mobility Enablers Unit at UITP. “We have given cities who are looking to make their fleets more sustainable the contacts and tools to make that happen. I’d like to think of the Platform as a strong launch of a European partnership that will continue for many years to come.
