Cities have been adopting e-buses in many countries around the world, many of which are committed to advancing 100,000 electric buses globally. Yet, there are several challenges that cities face, from procurement to technology to financing, that prevent them from scaling up beyond a pilot. 

As several global cities continue to make advancements in scaling the e-bus technologies that already exist, stakeholders should collectively think holistically about what they have learned and how this can shape the future deployment of clean, electric buses worldwide. The City of Jakarta, Indonesia, and the City of Salvador, Brazil, will join this webinar to discuss how they grappled with different challenges of their e-bus work, share the lessons learned, and provide other tips for scaling electric fleets.
