Detail

The list of winners were announced on 25 July 2016.

These documents provide guidance on funding eligibility and criteria for the low emission bus scheme. The low emission bus scheme has 3 objectives:

  • increase the uptake of low and ultra-low emission buses, speeding up the transition to an ultra-low emission bus fleet in England and Wales, and removing the need for subsidy support
  • support the improvement of local air quality
  • support the Office for Low Emission Vehicles’ commitment to attracting investment in the UK

Operators and local authorities can use the Low carbon bus calculator to assess the financial benefits - including payback times and internal rates of return - of bidding for buses under this scheme.
