Cleaner, greener buses

Published9th November 2017

Ipswich Buses has bought 14 greener double-decker vehicles to help improve the environment as well as services.

The new buses are cutting pollution as they release 40% of the nitrogen oxide than the buses they replace.

The buses were bought with a £1 million commercial loan given by the Borough Council, which owns Ipswich Buses. Council Leader David Ellesmere said: “We did this because it is important that the company has a modern and cleaner fleet that is good for passengers and for the town.”

Ipswich Buses Chairman Chris Mole added: “The 14 buses are replacing older vehicles that are more polluting and which require an increasing amount of maintenance.”
