London to host ‘Europe’s largest double-decker electric bus fleet’

The Mayor of London has announced the city will host the largest double-decker electric bus fleet in Europe. Sadiq Khan said 68 new electric double-deckers will be launched across the city next summer, an increase of more than 10-fold on current numbers.

Next year, Transport for London (TfL) aims to have 240 electric buses in operation, with all new double-decker buses to be zero-emissions or hybrid, followed by every single-deck bus in central London the year after. Its ultimate aim is for all buses in London to be zero-emission by 2037.
