NCT launches more Scania ADL biogas ‘deckers

Nottingham City Transport (NCT) has launched its latest batch of biogas-fuelled double-deckers as it continues to roll out 2019’s order for 67 of the type.

All have Alexander Dennis Enviro400 City bodies on Scania chassis. Nine for the Lime 58 route to Arnold entered service this week. They pass through areas that have been identified as in need of action to improve air quality.

Says NCT Marketing Manager Anthony Carver-Smith: “We are investing £42m over three years to reduce the emissions from our already clean fleet even further.

“Alongside the largest fleet of biogas double-decker buses in the world, NCT is also fitting exhaust aftertreatment systems to our remaining diesel buses, which will see the overall emissions from NCT reduce by 90% by 2020.”

When delivery of the second order is complete, NCT will have 120 biogas double-deckers.
