Clean Bus Technology Fund

 Research by Public Health England has shown that road transportation is accountable for over 60% of local roadside emissions.

Across West Yorkshire there are 28 declared Air Quality Management Areas due to the annual NO2 (Nitrogen Oxide) exceedance. This project aims to reduce the amount of NO2 by retrofitting accredited emission control technology onto 231 older buses across West Yorkshire to significantly improve tailpipe emissions.

This technology will remove an estimated 31 tonnes of Nitrogen Oxides from existing bus fleets per year.
