Transport for London is expanding the number of zero-emission buses across the city, with its latest fleet of all-electric ultra-modern vehicles. The buses have been created to include a number of features designed to make the service more attractive to commuters:
· New digital signage, with real-time information including the time to the next stop, disruptions and service updates
· USB chargers and mobile phone holders in the seats, so people can more easily work or catch-up on social media on the move.
· Larger windows and a skylight on the upper deck for more natural light
· Improved accessibility with larger wheelchair and buggy area
There are currently over 650 zero-emission buses operating in the capital and TFL aims to convert the whole fleet by 2034.
Investing in the London bus network and increasing the number of zero-emission buses, will not only make the service more attractive to passengers, it will improve the air quality making it safer and more pleasant for pedestrians and cyclists, whilst also creating 3,000 green jobs around the UK.
