Background & Policy context

Transitioning from a region with public transportation based on diesel buses to a region with e-bus fleets requires ample expertise in different fields. A wide range of themes must be covered in order to initiate and support e-bus development.


eBussed concentrates on the exchange of experience between partner regions at different stages of e-bus operation development, thereby serving regions struggling with this highly technical and fast developing field. As no partner region has as of yet entirely settled their e-bus transitioning path, new ideas, solutions and technologies can still be introduced to their development plans regardless of their current e-bus status.


eBussed supports the transition of European regions towards low carbon mobility and more efficient public transport. It promotes the uptake of e-buses in new regions and supports the expansion of existing e-fleets. eBussed project contributes to the Interreg Europe programme Specific objective 3.1 “Improving low-carbon economy policies” by encouraging regions to develop and deliver better policies related to the deployment of e-buses. The project also facilitates the integration of electricity production based on renewables and low carbon electrified public transport. Through new ideas and better policies, the project promotes both the demand and supply side of electricity from clean renewable sources and the subsequent transitioning towards a low carbon economy. eBussed will engage regions from all directions with and without practical experience on e-buses. The project will deliver 6 regional action plans and produce 4 thematic best practice reports, a set of readiness level indicators and policy recommendations to be used in partner regions. The project will increase capacities and knowledge among its partner regions via a multi-level exchange of experiences and cross-regional pollination of ideas to better support the transition towards fully electrified bus fleets and low carbon mobility.

The overall objective of eBussed is to improve the implementation of public policies to support regions transitioning towards low-carbon, sustainable, electrified public transport. The aim is to allow for an open exchange of information and knowledge which will increase the capacities of public officials and arm them with sufficient knowledge and practical examples on the different dimensions of e-bus development. The project will help public officials to ensure that plans to either introduce e-busses or to expand current e-fleets will actualise. The project also emphasises the importance of electricity production based on renewable energy sources in e-bus deployment.
