Analysis of Key Performance Indicators of Electric Bus Systems in Helsinki and Comparison to Simulated Results

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific

Abstract

Operation of opportunity charged electric buses can be an economically feasible solution for public transport in cities. However, the operation requires more planning than the operation of conventional buses. The data obtained from a pre-commercial electric bus pilot project by Helsinki Region Transport with 12 electric buses are gathered and analysed. The key performance indicators, having both the PTA's and PTO's as well as the passengers in mind, are chosen. Simulations are performed on all bus routes using a simulation tool based on geographical information. The key performance indicators obtained from real operation are compared to the simulated results.
