Sustainable Bus Award is the first and only European award that recognizes sustainability in the bus sector. It should not be considered just an award ceremony at the "greenest" bus. The Sustainable Bus Award is based on a transversal idea of sustainability, understood as the ability to establish a positive image of the vehicle to the general public. Several aspects are considered, such as safety, comfort, noise, component recyclability and the manufacturer's overall environmental commitment.
This year the international jury considered 44 vehicles and only 12 were selected as finalists for the three categories:
Sustainable Bus Award finalists in the Urban category: KARSAN e-ATA 12; SOLARIS Urbino 9 LE Electric; MERCEDES eCitaro G; VOLVO 7900 EA
Sustainable Bus Award finalists in the Intercity category: MAN Lion's Intercity LE; IRIZAR i4 CNG; SCANIA Interlink CNG; IVECO Crossway Low Entry Hybrid CNG
Sustainable Bus Award finalists in the Intercity category: IRIZAR i6S Efficient; YUTONG T 12E; NEOPLAN Cityliner; VOLVO 9700
7 international newspapers representing the main European markets are part of the jury.
The 3 winners will be announced on October 13th at 3:30 pm in the Future Vision hall.
