Abstract

According to the transport policy of the European Union electric buses are being introduced on a broader scale. In order to induct electric buses in service, a public transport company has to decide on the allocation of electric buses to specific bus lines. This decision should not be taken in subjective way but it should rather be supported by the scientific methodology that is to determine the parameters of bus lines, which may affect the allocation of buses to the transport tasks. The result of the article is a selection of the most important parameters of bus lines that influence the allocation of electric buses to the transport tasks.
