Abstract
EBSF is conceived as a driver to increase the attractiveness and raise the image of bus systems in urban areas, by means of developing new vehicles and infrastructure technologies in combination with operational best practices. The project will build upon state-of-the-art clean vehicular technologies and concentrate on improving the bus system as a whole. Six European cities will test and validate the project headways: Bremerhaven, Budapest, Gothenburg, Madrid, Rome and Rouen. The development of the new generation urban bus system will stimulate European cities to deploy new bus lines making public transport more attractive. The new "European Bus System" concept stemming from the project will also help European manufacturers to maintain or improve their competitive position. EBSF is an initiative of the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for R&D. The project is coordinated by the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), which represents about 3,100 mobility actors from 90 countries worldwide.
