Happy 10th Birthday electric buses
Today, we hosted a celebration at Camberwell Garage to mark the 10th anniversary of the operation of London’s first modern day emission-free bus, which was trialled on 18 December 2013. As part of the event, pictures were displayed of the ‘clean bus of the future’ drawn by pupils from schools across London. Pupils from Highshore School and guests were served with a zero emission bus themed birthday cake.
David Cutts, Managing Director, Go-Ahead London, said: “It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since our first electric bus hit the road. The technology has developed at a rapid pace and electric buses are rapidly become the norm, rather than the exception, on London’s streets. We’re proud to work in partnership with Transport for London to deliver cleaner air and quieter journeys for Londoners. The Go-Ahead Group as a whole has been able to take experience from London and apply it to the roll-out of zero emission buses across the UK.”
