European transport policy for the first half the 21st century assumes creating the transport system organised with the respect of the principle of sustainable development, providing economic, social and ecological needs of the society and supporting construction of the integrated society and entirely integrated and competitive Europe. Applying alternative fuels and drives in public transport vehicles is an essential instrument of this policy. In the paper fuels applied in the urban transport and alternative drives were described. Methodological establishments of evaluation of the investment’s financial and economical effectiveness associated with acquiring public means of transport with the alternative drive were discussed as well as results of the effectiveness evaluation of selected applications of alternative drives.
