Parma Road-tests e-Buses as Action Plan Takes Shape 

In July, Parma’s TEP brought the first Chinese-manufactured e-bus to EU roads to test its energy consumption & recharging times under different conditions (empty, with air-conditioning, etc). During the EU MOBILITY WEEK, Parma’s citizens were invited to share their experiences and views. The results of the Line 8 tests, which connects the city’s eastern suburbs, are already feeding into an action plan for PT e-services and multipurpose charging infrastructure (expected completion: May 2020).
The end result? Seamless multi-modal local zero-emission mobility in Parma!

June 21st, the European summer solstice,  marked the launch of LOW-CARB. Project Partners were hosted by Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe in the hometown of the lead partner, and besides running through the project's key outputs, they enjoyed a city site visit via the city's new 'XL' tram.

LOW-CARB puts the organisation of low-carbon public transport at the forefront of reducing GHG emissions, combined with new mobility offers like bike-sharing (supported by solar-powered e-bike charging stations), public transport e-feeder service) or multimodal information services (incl.
