|Location/Nationality of lead organisation||United States of America|
|Description|| To protect the lives of our citizens and support the development of the green economy, C40 are committing to rapidly accelerating the uptake of low and ultra-low emission bus technologies. The initiative urgently ask for the support of global manufacturers, public
transport operators, leasing companies, multilateral development banks and other funding agencies to step up and aid us in this process.
|Objectives||The cities that are part of the initiative will incorporate over 160,000 buses in their fleet by 2020, of which they have committed to switching 42,000 buses to low emission. GHG savings will be almost 900,000 tons per year, with a potential overall savings of 2.8 m tons each year if the cities managed to switch their entire bus fleet.|
|Activities|| The initiative continues to support cities by making use of media, event and other communication platforms to highlight the significant market opportunity for hybrid and electric buses and explore whether they could be made available at an affordable price for cities.
The initiative will continue to conduct meetings with manufacturers to highlight demand from cities, and to encourage movement in the price of low emission buses. Capacity Building: C40 has facilitated several study tours and information exchanges during 2016 between signatory cities to build capacity in cities who are just starting out on a clean bus journey.

Monitoring and Impacts
|Function of initiative||Political dialogue|
|Activity of initiative||Policy planning and recommendations|
|Goals|| The C40 Clean Bus Declaration is led by the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40). It is aimed at influencing manufacturers, public transport operators, leasing companies, multilateral development banks and other funding agencies to support city ambitions to decarbonize urban mass transport.
The cities that are part of the initiative will incorporate over 160,000 buses in their fleet by 2020, of which they have committed to switching 42,000 buses to low emission.

|Have you changed or strenghtened your goals|
|Progress towards the goals|| C40 has developed the Fossil Fuel Free Streets Declaration which is endorsed by 12 mayors from Auckland, Paris, London, Los Angeles, Copenhagen, Vancouver, Mexico City, Barcelona, Quito, Seattle, Milan, and Cape Town. These cities pledge to transition to fossil-fuel-free streets by procuring, with their partners, only zero-emission buses from 2025; and ensuring a major area of their cities is zero emission by 2030. The Declaration lays the foundation of C40’s work on low emission vehicles, mobility management, bus rapid transit, walking and cycling networks.
In 2016, two new cities in the African region and three cities in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region have expressed interest in signing up to the Declaration in 2016. Paris has come on board as the latest signatory, bringing the total number of cities signed up to twenty seven. Many other cities have expressed interest in signing up.
In recent months, signatory cities have continued to collaborate through C40, by sharing data on plans and targets, technology performance and how challenges in introducing these technologies at a large scale are being overcome in other cities around the world. Specific deliverables (events, workshops, reports, action) since COP21: Currently in the process of supporting the city of London in delivering a Zero Emission Bus conference in late November 2016, and a C40 Finance Academy in 2017, with a key focus on clean buses.
