The DfT has unveiled proposals to create the UK’s first all-electric bus town and bids must be backed by operators
I’ve suggested that 2020 could be the Year of the Bus.
Well, it’s got off to a reasonably good start, with the Department for Transport (DfT) announcing last week that local areas can apply for £50m funding to become the UK’s first all-electric bus town.
This is part of a £170m fund to encourage bus use, including £20m to trial on-demand bus sharing services in rural and suburban areas, £70m for “superbus” networks . . .
