CE4CE aims at bringing circular economy principles into the public transport sector and, thus, reduce waste, increase efficiency in the sector and improve the ecological footprint of public transport. This challenge affects in particular local public authorities, infrastructure and (public) service providers, and actors along the whole value/supply chain of public transport systems in Central Europe.

Through CE4CE, the public transport sector shall be empowered towards a circular system thinking and, thus, to understand and identify circularity gaps, develop circular approaches, and to integrate these approaches into strategic frameworks for the development of circular public transport systems.

CE4CE will also jointly develop outputs based on co-creation and peer reviews for take up by the public transport sector, e.g. pilot actions and solutions like the CE4CE Circularity Compass for public transport, the CE4CE Circularity Knowledge platform, a web-based second-hand market place, strategies and pilot actions to increase resource-efficiency and pilots demonstrating use more
