My plan is to roll out 20 per cent blends of sustainable-sourced biodiesel, known as B20, across the bus fleet by 2020 but as soon as possible.

Close to a third of the fleet (3000 buses) is in the process of switching to 17 to 20 per cent blends.  As soon as this first third of the fleet is all on B20, TfL will turn its attention to the rest of the fleet.
