Buses: Exhaust Emissions

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 137822, tabled on 1 February 2023

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, when he plans to allocate the next tranche of funding under the Zero Emission Bus Regional Area scheme; and whether his Department is considering changes to the structure of the scheme (a) in general and (b) in order to incentivise local authorities to place bus orders more quickly once they have been allocated funding.

We have funded an estimated 3,378 Zero Emission Buses across the UK so far. The Department will provide details on future funding for ZEBs in due course, taking into account the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement.
