The below table shows the Euro engine make-up of London's bus fleet as at 1 April 2015.

Euro Emission Standard

Total

Euro II

25

Euro III (unretrofitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction)

1120

Euro III (with Selective Catalytic Reduction)

1453

Euro IV

1628

Euro V

3506

Enhanced Environmentally-friendly Vehicle (or EEV)

661

Euro VI

584

 

 

Total

8977

By the end of 2015, there will be no unretrofitted Euro III buses in the fleet as these will be replaced with the latest Euro VI buses. Combined with earlier measures such as retrofitting older bus exhaust systems, the fleet will emit 20 per cent less oxides of nitrogen by 2016 compared with 2012 levels. On average, 700 new buses enter the fleet each year, replacing older vehicles with the latest vehicles and cleanest engines, leading to further emission reductions.
