200 business leaders and politicians discuss future of bus and coach transport in Europe
Some 200 business leaders, Members of the European Parliament, representatives of EU Member States and the EU institutions, NGOs, and journalists were present at the various events organised during the first European Bus and Coach Day in Brussels on 2 December). The events featured a dedicated workshop on the role and contribution of private bus and coach transport, a display of the winners of this year’s Bus and Coach of the Year Award on the esplanade of the European Parliament, as well as the European Inauguration of the “Smart Move” campaign, hosted by the MEP Michael Cramer (Greens/EFA).
The European private bus and coach industry used the opportunity to call upon EU policy decision makers to set the objective of doubling the use of collective passenger transport by bus and coach in the future EU White Paper on the European Transport Policy.
Achieving this objective in Europe alone would reduce CO2 emissions by at least 50 million tonnes per year, road fatalities by over 3000 per year, congestion in cities at zero cost for taxpayers subsequent to an expected 10-15% reduction in car traffic, and create 4 million new jobs.
ETOA moves smart and supports the Smart Move campaign
ETOA, the trade association for European tourism made the smart move and join Smart Move supporters’ club. ETOA offers European level representation for the interests of inbound and intra-European tour operators, wholesalers and their European suppliers.
“Smart Move”, a joint bus and coach industry campaign, was launched to meet ambitious environmental and road safety targets and achieve sustainable mobility for all, by promoting and significantly increasing the use of bus and coach transport in the EU and beyond.
Initiated by the world’s road transport organisation, IRU, and the world’s biggest specialised bus and coach exhibition, Busworld, Smart Move is endorsed and supported by national bus and coach operators’ associations and major manufacturers and suppliers worldwide.
Primarily addressed to policy and opinion makers, the Smart Move campaign will also be pursued in close collaboration with bus and coach operators and drivers, through industry initiatives and best practices to further improve the quality, safety, environmental-friendliness and efficiency of services offered.
In Europe alone, such an increase would result in a reduction in CO2 emissions by at least 50 million tonnes per year; a reduction in road fatalities by over 3000 per year; a spectacular fall of congestion in cities at zero cost for taxpayers subsequent to an expected 10-15% reduction in car traffic, and the creation of 4 million new jobs.
A long-term awareness-raising and advocacy campaign, Smart Move is open for support and contribution to any stakeholder or individual who shares the objective of the campaign: showcasing and promoting the huge potential of buses and coaches as key components of safe, green, efficient mobility and travel solutions affordable to all, including policy-makers.
Make the Smart Move and support the campaign!

The APC-proposal “CoachITS – a coach terminal of the future”, submitted by APC-president, Mr. Stefan Christian, was selected for implementation.
The goal of this proposal in the first step is the establishment of at network for an innovative cooperation between SME and key-members/opinion leaders with reference to coach traffic in Germany and Europe.
The overall concept is the development of innovative products and practices optimizing the process flow and establishment for high quality standards as well for coach terminals as for coach operators. The value-added chain will involve the needs and benefits for passengers and other stakeholders too.
The Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology agreed the appointment of the chairman of APC-advisory board, Mr. Andris Mamis, in the function as project manager. APC is further represented by the advisory board members Dr. Boris Kadish and Mr. Andreas Keuchel as business partner in the network organization. The other network partners are SME from Germany.
