Collective transport means must obviously be designed and used to minimize their environmental impact. The way to reach this aim, however, is certainly not obvious, since it must consider a number of aspects connected both with the fulfilment of users' expectations in terms of number and frequency of vehicle stops, and with the energetic and economic balances of the service offered. Taking the lead from these consideration, one of the authors previously developed a easy-to-use tool for the energetic assessment of alternative transport means to be used on a given route. Here, this tool is put in use by the authors for the design and prototyping of a rapid-charge electric bus for urban passenger transportation, within a close cooperation with an Italian Transportation Authority.
