ZeEUS – Zero Emission Urban Bus System

Bringing electrification to the heart of the urban bus network

Reminder: 'Electrik Power' – ZeEUS and Y4PT look for artists!

Published on

The Y4PT Foundation (Youth for Public Transport, a volunteer organisation) and the ZeEUS (Zero Emission Urban Bus System) project would like to remind you about the ongoing application for 'Electrik Power – Zero emissions, lots of talent!' with the aim of bringing a little glamour back to the humble bus.

The campaign will feature artistic performances on or around the ZeEUS project's demo buses, which will then be disseminated as short videos to promote healthy and clean mobility in cities. The performances will be organised during the buses' normal operating hours in order to engage the general public and improve its perception of the bus.

"All passengers experiencing our electric buses are quite enthralled by the smooth, silent and eco-friendly ride. This campaign will help to raise awareness for the buses," said Eckhard Schläfke, Head of Transport Operations at Stadtwerke Münster.

Jürgen Reining, CEO of SWB Bus und Bahn, added: “These young talents reach the hearts with music, art and culture. They will therefore be excellent ambassadors for e-mobility in public transport - particularly in Bonn, the seat of the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)”.

ZeEUS Demo Cities participating in the 'Electrik Power – Zero emissions, lots of talent!' campaign include: Barcelona (ES); Bonn (DE); Cagliari (IT); London (UK); Munster (DE); Plzen (CZ) and Warsaw (PL).
