Answer for Diesel particulate filters - fitting costs

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are no separate costs as fitting diesel particulate filters are part of the overall contract price for the New Bus for London. The filter is part of the exhaust after-treatment system and the upgrade to the Euro 6 engine standard.

The current Euro 5 New Bus for London, which does not have a diesel particulate filter, already delivers around 75 per cent less particulate matter, thanks to its innovative design, than a conventional diesel bus of the same engine generation.
