Coventry gets funds to become UKs 1st all-electric bus city: Coventry is on track to become the UK’s first all-electric bus city to receive a supply of funding focused on replacing its complete fleet of buses with electric vehicles (EVs).

The progression accompanies £50 million of new funding from the Department for Transport that will witness Transport for West Midlands work with bus operators to switch buses &  install charging infrastructure on Coventry streets.

Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street stated: “Not only will the clean bus fleet improve the public transport offering in Coventry, but it is also another step towards tackling the climate emergency and helping to attract people to leave their cars at home in favour of taking the bus.”

Transport Minister, Baroness Vere, added: “This will have a profoundly positive effect on air quality and emissions in the area and reduce noise pollution.”
