For safer travel

Let's make Coventry the first all-electric bus city!

Our new electric buses get us a step closer to our vision to become the UK’s most sustainable bus and coach company. We have already committed that our UK bus fleet will be fully zero emission from 2030 and we have proudly joined pollution-busting plans for Coventry to become the UK’s first all-electric bus city!

The steps we are taking to zero emission

Buses are already one of the cleanest ways to travel (a full double decker takes up to 75 cars off the roads!) but we’ve been working as part of the West Midlands Bus Alliance to tackle climate change and improve air quality in our region even further. 

Our electric vehicles produce zero carbon emissions at the tailpipe and are powered by renewable ‘green’ energy - even the heaters run off the battery! It’s not just the buses themselves that have had to change though. A shed-sized battery, a charging station for each bus and a new system for engineers to monitor the buses’ performance was needed at the garages. Our drivers have to be specially trained to drive the electric buses because they behave differently to combustion engine-driven buses. The drivers have to learn to preserve the charge for as long as possible and extend the range of the vehicle. The buses charge up in four hours, and can run for 190 kilometres before needing another charge. Our engineers have also been trained in a whole new kind of maintenance too!

The introduction of these buses was a significant milestone towards cleaner air in the Midlands and achieving our zero emission vision.
