Successful funding bid will bring cleaner buses to Tyneside

Submitted by Ray Kennedy on Thu, 11/04/2019 - 15:27

Newcastle City Council has successfully bid for additional cash from the government’s Clean Bus Technology Fund.

The city council has been awarded £379,600, which will be used to fit new engine technology to 23 vehicles. This is in addition to £690,000 which was awarded last year, allowing the upgrade of 43 buses.

It means bus passengers, other road users and people living on the affected bus routes will benefit from cleaner air.
