LOCOG has requested expressions of interest from potential coach and bus operators, seeking a vehicle fleet that meets the Euro IV equivalent for large vehicles - i.e it will meet the current and London Low Emissions Zone (LEZ) requirements and its potential revised standards in 2012. ODA has already tendered for its Park and Ride and Direct Coach services for spectators, which will also meet the Euro IV emission standard.
