JASPERS-European Commission-UITP Workshop on Bus fleet renewal through deployment of clean and efficient vehicles
Many local transport authorities, particularly in Central Eastern Europe, are in need of replacing much faster ageing bus units within their fleets or of introducing bus transport to serve a growing urban population. The purpose is to meet current standards, increase efficiency and passenger comfort and reduce transport related emissions. EU funds – mainly from European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI) but also from Horizon 2020 and potentially from the Connected Europe Facility (CEF) – contribute to modernise the urban and regional bus fleets in the EU and therefore to improve public transport quality and efficiency.
Bus fleet renewal and/or extension through EU funding represent an important opportunity to improve the quality, efficiency and image of public transport as a whole, its market share, the environment in the area served and the integration into a wider smart local development strategy.
JASPERS, in cooperation with the EU Commission and UITP, invites interested operators, responsible authorities at local, regional and national level, manufacturers and NGOs to attend this workshop and contribute to the development of planning and procurement approaches in all ESI Funds benefitting countries.
Participation to this workshop is free of charge, but registration is compulsory and can be done at the following web-form until Wednesday 20 June at the latest. Please note that the number of places is limited and we encourage interested participants to register early to secure their participation.
