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 is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
