For the first time, a wide consortium of 47 partners in 11 countries has dedicated four intensive years of research and development to the improvement of bus systems (under the coordination of UITP). The innovative solutions developed and tested as part of the project 'European Bus System of the Future' can be considered essential ingredients for an intelligent bus system, with pioneering vehicles and infrastructures that are well-integrated in European urban scenarios. At this final event, we will give lively presentations to show the results of our research, and exhibit some of the greatest EBSF achievements: four bus demonstrators and prototype (Volvo, MAN, Irisbus, Evobus), the EBSF driver cabin, and the IT architecture test bench.
