OPTIMOB is a web-based decision support tool to size your new electric bus line and charging infrastructure.

Unlike in fossil-sourced propulsion methods, there is still no one-size-fits-all solution for electric bus operations in urban environments.

The transition towards electrified bus routes therefore requires making multiple choices amongst the wide range of different technical solutions available in the BEV bus and charging infrastructure market.

Currently available technical solutions are better suited for one or other use case, the key lies in thoroughly understanding the requirements of a to-be electrified bus line, and translating them into the technical enablers that will guarantee the best fit.

OPTIMOB reduces complexity and guides the decision-making to ensure cost-effective sustainable and durable electrified bus lines suited to your city's particular needs.
