Funding for greener buses

Buses between Harrogate and Knaresborough are set to become cleaner and greener after Harrogate Borough Council secured £237,000 of funding from the Department of Transport’s Clean Bus Technology Fund.

After gauging interest, Harrogate Borough Council partnered with local bus company, Transdev, to develop the successful bid. The funds will be used to pay for modifications to ten buses that will reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide by at least 50%.

The vehicles will operate between Harrogate and Knaresborough and through the Air Quality Management Area at Bond End.  The bid has been specifically targeted at areas of poor air quality and is anticipated to provide significant improvement across the route one corridor.
