Answer for 500 new buses (4)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Bus operators will need to procure additional new vehicles to meet the planned rise in capacity between now and 2020/21. There will be a combination of new Euro VI, Euro VI hybrid and pure electric buses.

This will help improve air quality, assist with my proposed Ultra Low Emission Zone and meet my aspirations for reducing bus fleet emissions.
