Guildford sees new electric fleet

A new electric minibus fleet will be deployed in Guildford for its for Dial-a-Ride service thanks to approval of an £820,000 investment.

Cllr Julia McShane, Lead Councillor for Community Health, Support and Wellbeing says: “Our Dial-a-Ride service provides help for those who need a hand getting around the borough due to mobility problems.

“We are pleased that we can continue to provide this valued service with our new electric fleet, which will help reduce fuel emissions and make our streets a greener, cleaner place to be.”

The average daily mileage of our minibuses is 50 miles, which means the vehicles will not need to be charged every day.

Cllr McShane adds: “We already have a number of electric vehicles and will continue to grow our electric fleet – just one way we are helping to tackle climate change in our borough.”
