Once the new zero-emission buses are deployed, First Bus will have over 500 electric vehicle buses in operation, driving forward its journey to net zero and supporting hundreds of green jobs across the UK.
The Zero Emission Buses Regional Area scheme has awarded 12 local transport authorities with a portion of £198.3 million to purchase zero-emission buses, which will equate to 943 alternative power buses being rolled-out on England's roads.
By integrating with Google Maps in the UK, TIER Mobility is able to improve passenger access to its e-scooters and promote greener forms of public transport.
Scooter operator TIER is utilising a new type of mapping technology in a bid to end the scourge of misparking once and for all.
Passengers in York can now buy tickets and plan journeys with all of York’s bus operators in one unified travel app.
Council leaders have been urged to put York forward as a zero emission city centre candidate, which would mean only bicycles and electric vehicles are permitted.
The City of York Council allegedly wants to make the city carbon neutral by 2030 - 20 years ahead of the UK government's net zero target.
