Without EU action, demand for clean urban buses will not be matched by supply
In a letter to the EU Commission, cities and NGOs say it's time to propose a target for all new urban buses sales to be zero emission from 2027.
A wide range of stakeholders have written to the European Commission urging lawmakers to include a sales target for zero emission urban buses in the forthcoming proposal on CO2 standards for new heavy-duty vehicles.
A zero emission sales target for urban buses is necessary to meet demand for these vehicles from Europe’s cities and towns, to clean up urban air, and to put buses on a trajectory compatible with EU climate targets, they write. Crucially, they ask the Commission to propose a target for all new urban buses sales to be zero emission from 2027.
