London’s Double Decker bus services to run with zero emissions soon
The legendary Double Decker buses from London have made their way along the path of global environmental awareness. This comes with the announcement of a pure electric double decker bus from this October. This announcement was made atop the first electric double decker bus, at the inaugural Clean Bus Summit, by the Mayor of London. Over 40,000 ultra-low emission buses are on their way to 24 other cities across the globe by 2020. London already features electric double decker buses plying since 2013. The buses were made by BYD who will also be developing the new ones.
The new double decker buses will hit the roads by October on route 16. They will ply between Victoria and Cricklewood. The city will also see the first ever electric bus route this year. Skeptics will raise concerns about a heavy bus with giant batteries but then again you wouldn’t want something looting and polluting your deserved dose of fresh air.
