ABSTRACT
The paper contains basic information about the currently used methods of construction and maintenance, that result in the reduction of fuel consumption by mass transit vehicles, for both passenger and freight vehicles. Particular attention was given to solutions using hybrid systems (regenerative braking) and systems that recover energy from exhaust gas (thermoelectric generators. The economic aspects of exploitation of such vehicles associated with the proper control of drive units (i.e. eco-driving) were also considered.
