The Greens estimate that after this second round of funding from the Green Bus Fund, around 74 of Scotland’s 5400 buses will be hybrids.
Cllr Steve Burgess said:
“The number 10 hybrids have been very popular and I congratulate Lothian Buses on securing another ten green buses for the city. This is good news for cutting climate-changing pollution and good news for air quality on our busy streets.
“Buses have been a very low priority for the SNP Government and this money needs to be seen in the context of cuts to their funding of bus services. We need a far more ambitious approach if we are going to make our public transport system both greener and more affordable.”
