The population of the world continues to grow. More and more people are living in urban areas. Fossil fuels are becoming more expensive and their prices are regularly rising. The demand for mobility is increasing worldwide, particularly in Asia and Eastern Europe. Although this is a welcome development for the bus and coach industry and its customers, it could be a double-edged sword.



Greater mobility leads to more pollutants and emissions, and greater consumption of increasingly scarce resources.

Buses and coaches can play an major part in providing mobility for all at remarkably low capital and operating costs. They can carry passengers quickly and economically, at a fraction of the carbon footprint per kilometre compared with private cars or aircrafts.

The manufacturing industry is working hard to offer future-focused solutions and the best available technology by further developing alternative fuel and drive systems, especially electro-mobility.

It will need political will and investment to make bus and coach travel more attractive and to win over car and aircraft users. Because a typical city bus carries as many people as 35 cars, it should be given priority in city traffic, with dedicated bus lanes and priority at junctions. The journey from home to city centre should be as quick and as comfortable as the car, without the costs of city centre parking. Significant reductions in car usage will lead to lower emissions, much less congestion and higher quality of life in urban areas.


Busworld Europe is the largest international exhibition in the industry, bringing together innovative manufacturers and suppliers. Busworld offers them a platform to present their latest products to a global audience.

This year Busworld Europe will give special attention to products and enterprises which contribute to the sustainable ambitions and the environmental image of the bus and coach industry. They will be marked with a Sustainable Mobility label.

Sustainable mobility is not a luxury – it is a necessity.
