Answered By:

I expect the current all-electric bus fleet to grow from eight to 15 vehicles with the conversion of route 312 towards the end of 2015. As part of my Ultra Low Emission Zone proposals all single deck buses in central London will have to be zeo emission at tailpipe by 2020. This means I expect to see the number of vehicles steadily grow between now and 2020, and exceed 300 by 2020.
