The area referred to in my Transport Strategy is the central London Ultra Low Emission Zone, which is the same area as the Congestion Charge Zone. The target is for all single-deck buses entering this zone to be zero emission from 2020, rather than an absolute number as network changes can take place which can make this number vary. Currently, up to 180 single deck buses operate in the central London area, and more than 100 of these are zero-emission.
