Bus fleet renewal through deployment of clean and efficient vehicles - Bucharest workshop


A workshop on Bus fleet renewal through deployment of clean and efficient vehicles was held in Bucharest on 24 April 2018.


The JASPERS Networking Platform was created to complement JASPERS project advisory operations by implementing knowledge sharing and capacity building activities, as well as fostering dissemination of good practices and exchange of experiences among all EU member states, pre-accession countries and other JASPERS Stakeholders.

The JASPERS Networking Platform is open to relevant authorities from all EU Member States (EU 28), as well as pre-accession Countries.


Many local transport authorities in Romania 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) – (could) contribute to modernise the urban and regional bus fleets and therefore to improve quality, efficiency, image and market share of public transport.





Policies at EU level strongly support the implementation of cleaner and more sustainable urban transport, with a particular focus on clean fuels and vehicles. Many cities in CEE countries, especially the larger ones, dispose of experience with testing and implementing bus services provided through Diesel Euro VI, CNG, LNG and several forms of electrical buses.


JASPERS organised a workshop in Bucharest, in close cooperation with the Romanian Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration, aiming at sharing knowledge on the performance of these new technologies, lessons to be learned, aspects to be considered in the planning stage, and future developments. 

The workshop brought together a total of about 90 policy makers, practitioners and planners from regional and local authorities in Romania and was considered useful, also to prepare funding applications for the TO4 transport attribution under the Regional Operational Program.
