Mayor Plans Green Bus Spree
Mayor Boris Johnson and Transport for London have unveiled wide-ranging new plans to tackle the capital’s air quality crisis, setting out proposals to invest £330m through to 2020 in new green buses and taxis.
Yesterday, Transport for London published its Board Papers confirming support for the Mayor’s planned ultra low emission zone for 2020 by rolling out a further 2,400 hybrid buses and up to 300 electric buses.
“Nobody has shown greater desire to improve air quality in the capital than the Mayor,” said Matthew Pencharz, the Mayor’s senior adviser for environment and energy. “He has set out the most ambitious and comprehensive set of measures to address the problem and this business plan provides the funding to deliver the Ultra-Low Emission Zone, which will be a game changing moment in terms of improving air quality in London.”
In related news, Johnson today unveiled plans to plant the final 4,300 trees in his Street Tree Initiative, putting him on track to deliver on his promise of 10,000 new street trees by March 2015.
“By pulling out our green fingers and planting trees in our communities, we are making this city a more pleasant place to live and work in,” he said. “I’m delighted these projects are transforming green spaces across London and I urge everyone to get outside, pick up a spade and get involved.”
