“The funding from DFT’s Green Bus Fund means that at least 400 cleaner hybrid buses are expected to be operating on London’s streets by the end of March 2013.

“There are currently over 260 hybrid buses operating in London,” TfL says. The new money means 70 more.

Overall, the £31 million national Green Bus Fund “will result in 439 new low carbon buses operating in many towns and cities in England by March 2013,” TfL says.
