As part of its commitment to reduce congestion and address the climate change emergency, Transport for West Midlands has expanded its DRT service, West Midlands On Demand, in Coventry.
Following a multi-million-pound investment into the city, Coventry is now on track to becoming the UK’s first all-electric bus city by 2025, with up to 300 zero-emission buses expected to be on the streets.
The scheme will encourage drivers of older cars to stop using their vehicles in exchange for mobility credits which could be used on car club services for example.
The two UK cities could receive up to £50 million to develop an all-electric bus fleet and the infrastructure to go with it.
The ultimate goal of the track project is to design an affordable trackform that can be easily removed, reduce impact on utilities and existing infrastructure, and save hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Said to be a first in the UK, the scheme will see drivers swapping their cars for mobility credits of up to £3,000 which they can spend on public transport, taxis, share schemes and car clubs.
The vehicle will be electric-powered; generating zero emissions, designed with the view to being autonomous in the future.
