CPT’s Head of Policy Alison Edwards has reacted to the launch of a multi-million pound scheme for zero-emission buses across England.
“Today’s announcement is a welcome first step in delivering the Prime Minister’s 4000 zero emission buses pledge and will also provide a welcome boost to bus manufacturers.
“Buses are already amongst the greenest vehicles on our roads contributing only 3% of the UK transport sector’s carbon emissions. To ensure we are on track to deliver net zero by 2050 it is vital that more people travel by bus. This will mean putting buses at the heart of transport networks with measures to improve journeys times at the core of new partnerships with local authorities.”
