Europe's EDDA consortium is building electric buses that are capable of being charged at bus stops in just a matter of minutes. Drivers of these buses will be able to call on designated stops that will be fitted with high-capacity charging stations.

Drivers will be able to position the bus in place by using visual markers on the curb as well as auditory cues that help them guide the bus to the best position. The bus stations are fitted with overhead charging hoods that connect with the buses heat-resistant rooftop contact system

Public transit has long been a means towards reducing vehicle dependence and thereby helping the environment, but these electric buses take eco-friendly transit to a whole new level.
