Why the Euro VI bus is essential to the success of Clean Air Zones

This blog from Dr David Begg discusses why the latest Euro VI Diesel bus is a crucial part of the solution to our air quality challenge. If diesel buses are banned from Clean Air Zones bus passengers will experience a reduction in service levels of at least 80%. A reduction of service of this magnitude will not only be disastrous for bus passengers, city economies, road congestion and social inclusion.

Greener Journeys: helping to make the switch to bus and coach

Greener Journeys is a campaign dedicated to encouraging people to make more sustainable travel choices. We aim to reduce CO2 emissions from transport by encouraging people to switch some of their car journeys to bus or coach instead. Switching from car to bus for just one journey a month would mean one billion fewer car journeys on our roads and would save two million tonnes of CO2 every year.
