Good news for green buses

6 November 2012
Campaign for Better Transport has welcomed an announcement by the Department for Transport's of new financial support for green buses.

Richard Hebditch, Campaigns Director at Campaign for Better Transport said

"This will help buses build their image as a modern, green way to travel. We expect the fund to be over-subscribed, showing a real desire from local authorities and bus operators to invest in a bright future for bus services. Our bus services are under severe financial pressure as a result of the cuts in central and local government funding so any additional support will be welcomed."

ENDS
