Content Overview Bus Fleet Renewal Toolkit

This content overview helps you nagivate through this toolkit. Note that many of the posts listed below again include a set of resources (not shown below).

1. General Information

To start with, this module includes a guidance document including all relevant contents of a bus fleet renewal process as well as an overview of different bus technologies and a collection of internal and external case studies.

1.1 Overview Bus Fleet Renewal Toolkit
1.2 Technology Overview
1.3 Guidance Document Sector  Transformation
1.4 GIZ Case Studies
1.5 European Case Studies

2. Coordination and management

In order for a project to be successfully implemented, project managers have to be aware of different important factors such as important stakeholders, functioning steering structures or standard indicators measuring the achievements of project objectives. This module thus aims at providing project managers with all the necessary tools for the success of their project such as a guiding checklist to include relevant stakeholders, an overview of steering formats and structures as well as a collection of indicators for the achievement of projects and presentations specific to fleet renewals. 

2.1 Checklist Stakeholder Engagement
2.2 Best Practice Steering Structure
2.3 Standard Indicators
2.4 Project Presentations
2.6 Process Steps of Busfleet Renewal Projects

3. Awareness raising and technical design

This module provides project managers with the relevant skills and knowledge to assess risk categories and equips project developers with approaches to reduce the identified risks of the proposed measures and the technical design. In order to identify and select from technological measures, this module also includes material on calculating the environmental, financial and economic impacts of different technologies as well as material on tendering processes and service contracts.

3.1 Technology Risk Categories
3.2 Technology Evaluation Tool
3.3 Guidance on (Pool) Tendering
3.4 Options for Operational Models
3.5 Transport Service Contract

4. Financing

Knowledge about financing is crucial for the success of every bus fleet renewal project. This module therefore aims at overcoming financial barriers by giving guidance on different financing options and providing specific tools and best practices for financing a busfleet renewal.

4.1 Guidance on options for financing
4.2 Best Practice Financing
4.3 Model Financial and Economic Impact Analysis
4.4 Example ToR for Financial Analysis Bus Technologies

5. Monitoring and Impact Assessment

The assessment of the impact of the fleet renewal is an important step towards the successful implementation. Several tools, studies and best practice examples of MRV are included in this module to successfully monitor the implementation of the project.

5.1 MRV Overview
5.2 Best practice MRV, accompanying research
5.3 Environmental Impact Assessment Tool

6. Capacity Development

Finally, this chapter includes a diverse collection of study tours and further training courses from different regions and organizations specifically designed to electromobility and bus fleet renewals to foster capacity development in this subject.

6.1 UITP Electric Bus Training
6.2 Overview Trainings
6.3 Study Tour and Tourguide Electric Mobility
