Develop a ‘project plan’, which summarises the mission and strategic goals:

  • detailed description of the project itself (timeline, goals, etc.)
  • detailed discussion of the trial location based on (i) Relevance (to encourage visibility); (ii) Suitability (demanding routes may increase the technical difficulties)
  • technical description of the route on which the buses will serve (route length; number of stops; driving cycle; etc.)
  • contingency plan should tasks require more time than expected or fail
  • A description of the technology to be procured -not over-specify details but rather focus on core performance specifications
  • Include a strategy for bus and refuelling station maintenance
