Electric buses come to Nottingham


Transport Minister Norman Baker has just launched the country's largest fleet of electric buses in Nottingham.

The city council has spent more than £1.6 million on eight zero-emission electric buses, 4 of which will run on centrelink, the free city centre shuttle run by trent barton.

Norman Baker MP, said: "Nottingham's dedication to providing a sustainable and accessible public transport network has really impressed me.

"I have visited the city on a number of occasions and I am pleased to be back to launch the city's new green bus fleet."

The brand new buses are a much greener method of travel than diesel-powered buses, and will help the city council meet its target of reducing the city's carbon emissions by 26% by 2020.

Jeff Counsell, Managing Director, said “trent barton are proud to be part of yet another ground-breaking development in Nottingham’s World Class public transport city”
