Answered By:

No, it is not necessary and it would not be cost effective. TfL has a thorough understanding of emissions from its bus fleet.

The New Routemaster is the best in classhybrid Euro V bus in the fleet as shown by the independent route 159 simulation at Millbrook Proving Ground - which compares all buses in an identical way - and is based on real-world driving conditions.
