The total number of vehicles in Transport for London’s (TfL’s) current fleet is 9,300 buses. There are around 5,650 conventional diesels, 3,510 diesel-electric hybrids, 130 pure electrics and 10 hydrogen fuel-cells. More than 60 per cent of the fleet is now at the ultra-clean Euro VI engine emission standard, demonstrating that are TfL well on the way to the bus fleet being entirely Euro VI or better by 2020.
