Cleaner, greener buses will be coming to Birmingham after £3milllion was awarded to a city council-led partnership project by the Department for Transport and the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles.
Commenting on the support shown for the scheme, Anne Shaw, Assistant Director for Transportation and Connectivity at Birmingham City Council said:
“It is great that our efforts to work in partnership with transport operators to make Birmingham’s air cleaner are being backed by government.
“We are working on a wide range of projects to develop cleaner technologies and solutions to address air quality issues – this funding will help place the city at the forefront of what is being done.
“As well as tackling one of society’s biggest public health challenges, this programme of research and development will open up employment and business opportunities for Birmingham.”
