View original Bristol and Bath councils apply for funding to make buses more environmentally friendly

As reported by Bristol Live, Bristol and Bath councils have joined together to bid for £2.48 million from the government’s Clean Bus Technology Fund to refurbish buses across the two cities. The funding would help to make the buses more environmentally friendly and reduce carbon emissions. Bristol City Councillor Kye Dudd said that buses and coaches currently made up 23% of the city’s nitrogen dioxide emissions and that the funding would allow for new technology to be installed on the buses which would reduce emissions by 90%.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
