Low carbon buses to hit the road soon

Government funding of over £46 million will see 542 new low carbon buses on roads across England by March 2012, Transport Minister Norman Baker announced today.

The money is part of the Government’s drive to target investment in new projects that promote green growth and encourage use of sustainable local transport.

All English regions will benefit with funds which have been paid to 20 bus operators and 6 local authorities. All the buses are expected to be in service by 2012.

Low carbon buses emit around 30 per cent fewer greenhouse gas  emissions than standard diesel buses and use around a third less fuel.
