Topics / Soot-free buses

Buses offer an opportunity to accelerate soot-free vehicle deployment because they are centrally fueled and could therefore have access to cleaner fuels not available to all vehicles in a region. Furthermore, people are exposed to harmful emissions from urban buses at rates higher than for any other type of vehicle, making buses an exceptional target for emissions control. 

Zero emissions bus technologies, especially battery electric buses, are becoming cost-effective solutions and entering the market much more quickly than expected. But diesel buses meeting Euro VI or U.S. 2010 standards or equipped with diesel particulate filters will also provide tremendous health benefits to bus riders and urban residents, while also greatly reducing the climate impact of these buses by virtually eliminating black carbon emissions.
