Clean, energy-efficient and sustainable transport systems have a vital role to play in efforts to move towards a low carbon world. Through its recent European Clean Bus deployment Initiative, the European Commission is making a significant contribution to this transition.
The process of developing policy generally involves research, analysis, consultation and synthesis of information to produce recommendations. Guidelines can help cities develop and assess their transport policies to address existing and new policy objectives. Research organisations and institutions provide valuable data and analysis to underpin policy recommendations and decisions.
