We’re busy introducing more electric and hybrid buses

Liverpool is proud to welcome the introduction of several new electric and hybrid buses. This highlights the on-going commitment in Liverpool to reduce emissions and improve our air quality.

The new buses, which can complete an impressive 130 miles per charge, have been introduced on the 26/27 Sheil Road Circular route serving Everton, Anfield, Kirkdale, Kensington and Toxteth.

These low-emission additions put the city at the cutting edge of green bus transport technology and help reduce air pollution in the city.

The city continues to make great strides towards greener transportation, following the addition of 51 hybrid buses and nine gas buses that were introduced in 2017.

Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram said: “Low emission buses already make up more than 80 per cent of the Bus Alliance fleet and these zero emission electric buses are now setting the future standard.”
