Coventry will become UK's first all electric bus city

The city of Coventry in the UK has taken a significant step forward, launching a £150 million project to become UK’s first all-electric bus city by 2025. In collaboration with Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), Coventry City Council is deploying charging infrastructure and helping bus operators in upgrading their fleets with electric vehicles. In late November this year, no less than 50 new greener buses have been put on the streets of Coventry. These 50 new buses are the first of up to 300 new vehicles due to arrive over the next 3 years. The city already had 10 all-electric buses operated by National Express, bringing the total number of buses in the city to 60. A quarter of the city’s fleet is now all-electric, and they have 607 charging points in the city – more than any other city outside of London. Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said: “As we seek to tackle the climate emergency and maintain our #WM2041 net zero commitment, these British-made buses are saving energy, cutting fuel costs for operators and improving our air quality.” The electric bus fleet is just one part of TfWM’s plans with new rail, bus, tram, and cycle routes being developed and new technology introduced to support the West Midlands in achieving its #WM2041 target and becoming a net-zero carbon region within the next two decades.
