To find out who the three winners of the Sustainable Bus Awards 2025 will be, we will have to wait for the awards ceremony during the opening day of the FIAA in Madrid, scheduled to take place in the Spanish capital Oct. 22-25. In the meantime, however, the 14 finalists who will compete for the coveted awards in the three categories – urban, intercity and coach – have been announced.

The selection process for this edition of the award was particularly challenging: this year the jury faced unprecedented difficulties in compiling the shortlists due to the quantity-quality offered by the producers. After extensive consideration and synthesis of the jurors’ preferences, the shortlists were finalized.
