In the session Technology innovations for buses, Francisco Gonzalez-Balmas (TMB) explained the logic of the project: “In the survey conducted in the frame of the 3iBS project, more than 40% of urban mobility actors expressed the will to introduce more electric buses. Tests of high-capacity buses in ZeEUS aim to provide necessary data to facilitate implementation of the innovative electric solutions.” This message was strengthened also by a presentation at the UITP stand: “Thanks to the deep involvement of local stakeholders, strong support will be provided to decision makers with guidelines and tools to determine ‘if’, ‘how’ and ‘when’ to introduce electric bus systems in their urban network”, said Pauline Bruge (UITP).
The immediate results of the project could be also visible during the ZeEUS Bus Tour featuring the stands of IRIZAR, SOLARIS, VOLVO and VDL. Each bus manufacturer showcased their high capacity e-bus solutions and promoted the ZeEUS demonstrations in Barcelona, Münster, Stockholm and Warsaw. The specifications, product solutions and future outlook of high capacity e-buses were also the main theme of a dedicated Focus Session.
