The estimates, provided in the table below, are indicative and can range significantly from supplier to supplier and also on size and capacity of the bus. There is no unit cost for gas-powered vehicles as this technology is not used in the TfL bus fleet. When assessing the most cost-effective technology, the total operating costs over the life of the vehicle must be taken into account.



Indicative Cost

Diesel single-deck bus


Hybrid diesel-electric single-deck bus


All electric single-deck bus


Gas fuelled single-deck bus

Fuel cell single-deck bus
