Nordic status for zero emission buses

In collaboration with Zero, the Norwegian Association for Public Transportation and Ruter, we invite to a two day conference on zero emission buses, including excursions with electric buses and trips to associated infrastructure.

Over the next few months over 170 electric buses will be on the roads in Norwegian cities. Several cities across the Nordics are also getting ready for large scale implementation of electric buses.

The goal of the conference is to share experiences on implementing zero emission buses for public transportation, including planning for zero emission tenders and sharing operational know-how.
