TfL is committed to releasing data on the production vehicles as these are the finished article. There will be 27 buses operating up to 24 hours a day on route 24, providing a large enough sample over a sufficient duration to make the results robust and relevant for comparison purposes. These will enable realistic benchmarking to take place between the NBfL and conventional diesel buses on the same route under the same operational conditions.
