Project managers of bus fleet modernization programs need a structured plan that breaks down the program into manageable components and phases. Project elements like activities, outputs,
timeframes and monitoring measures should be included in such a plan.
The aim of this document is to provide a diverse set of examples of how countries and cities have designed the management process of bus fleet modernization projects. The examples have been selected because they exhibit different ways of structuring a management process and because they differ on their scope and thematic issues: the country examples (Philippines and Costa Rica) deal with more comprehensive attempts to modernize Public Transport at a national level, while the city examples (Gdynia, Monza and Aachen) present the management process of specific activities, such as the introduction and testing of bus technologies.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach for managing bus fleet modernization projects. Alignment with the city or country context is always necessary. However, the good practices of others should be taken into as a source of inspiration.
