ABOUT ZEEUS, THE ZERO EMISSION URBAN BUS SYSTEM
ZeEUS has aimed to be the main EU activity in extending the fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network. Over 100 high-capacity electric buses were tested in ten cities across Europe: Barcelona, Bonn, Cagliari, Eindhoven, London, Paris and others. The key objectives of the ZeEUS project were as follows:
- To extend fully-electric solution to the core part of the urban bus network composed of high capacity buses
- To evaluate the economic, environmental and societal feasibility of electric urban bus systems through live operational scenarios across Europe
- To facilitate the market uptake of electric buses in Europe with dedicated support tools and actions
- To support decision-makers with guidelines and tools on “if”, “how” and “when” to introduce electric buses
