The Department for Transport (DfT) has opened bidding for a £48m fund for new electric and hydrogen-powered buses. Gas-fuelled buses may also be eligible.

The ultra-low emission bus (ULEB) scheme, funded by the government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles, was opened today to operators, combined authorities and local councils in England and Wales. Funding will not be available to minibuses or coaches, or to vehicles retrofitted to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
