UK government announces £120m funding for electric buses

UK government announces £120m funding for electric buses
21/04/2021

The UK government has announced huge plans for more electric buses in a bid to cut emissions.

The UK’s Transport Secretary Grant Shapps launched a scheme in March to enable local transport authorities to roll out zero-emission buses as the government continues to build back greener.

Up to £120 million is being made available through the zero-emission-buses regional area (ZEBRA) scheme, which allows local transport authorities to bid for funding to purchase electric buses, which will help to reduce the carbon emissions from their public transport.

This will deliver up to 500 zero-emission buses, supporting the government’s wider commitment to introduce 4,000 zero-emission buses.

“Zero-emission buses are great news all round. As well as addressing climate change and air pollution, this funding will boost the bus manufacturing sector and give more passengers the best modern buses,” says Silviya Barrett, head of policy, research and projects at Campaign for Better Transport.

Rubb can support local transport authorities by providing storage and maintenance facilities for the increase of zero-emission buses.

Rubb Sweden previously supplied a Thermohall® workshop for a fleet of commuter buses in Stockholm.
