Answered By:

There are currently 2,641 single deck buses in the fleet, of which around 70 per cent are Euro 4 engine generation or better and of which more than 25 per cent are fitted with diesel particulate filters. Of the overall total, 28 are diesel-electric hybrid and six are hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles which also utilise hybrid technology.

By the end of 2015, TfL anticipates all remaining Euro 3 engine buses will have been fitted with selective catalytic reduction equipment to ensure the entire fleet becomes compliant with the Euro 4 engine emissions standard for NOx and particulate matter
