Who is allowed to take part?

To have a comparable competition the jury sets some criteria in advance for application. For the Bus Euro Test 2018 these were:

- Buses with 2 or 3 axles
- Minimum 10 meters
- In serial production
- Minimum Euro 6 – infrastructure for alternative fuels will be available (hydrogen, CNG and electricity for overnight battery charging, anything else on request)
- No special edition

If there are too many applications the jury will make a pre-selection.

The Bus or Coach Euro Test includes braking and acceleration tests, driving on road by the jury members and presentations by the manufacturers. After these three intensive days of testing every judge gives just one final mark for each vehicle. For this he takes the following into consideration when deciding about the points: safety, driving comfort, arrangement of steering wheel, displays, mirrors, noise inside the bus etc.
