The Scottish Government has launched the second phase of the Scottish Zero Emission Bus Challenge Fund (ScotZEB), with up to £58 million available.

Paul White, Director of the Confederation of Passenger Transport in Scotland said:

“Bus plays a pivotal role in meeting net zero targets. It is sustainable, flexible, accessible and as the fleet further transitions to zero-emissions, its green credentials only grow.

“This further round of ScotZEB will help support operator investment in Scotland, which is already leading the charge to Net Zero across the UK.

“We welcome the scheme and, in particular, its inclusion of coach, which plays a crucial role for many residents and visitors and supports our 'green tourism' ambitions.”
