Increased Political Commitment to the E-bus Transition
In 2021, the TUMI E-Bus Mission started to support 20 deep dive cities around the world and building up a network of cities for accelerating e-bus deployment in the Global South. The overall goal continues to prepare the cities for the procurement of 100,000 e-buses from 2025 on. After two years of a coalition of several partners (C40, ICCT, ICLEI, ITDP, UITP and WRI), it is time to look at what progress has been made.
The starting point of the work with the cities has been supporting the commitment to ambitious goals for e-bus deployment in the near and mid future. What progress can we observe in the cities and the regions?
