Answer for Coaches Idling

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have asked TfL to conduct spot checks of any coaches which appear to be idling on Horseferry Road, near St John’s Gardens, as part of current monitoring arrangements.

 

There has already been a lot of work carried out to tackle coach emissions. For example, FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) have accredited coach operators and has produced a free anti-idling toolkit, which offers practical advice to both coach and commercial operators.
