Carousel Buses has increased the number of ultra-low-emission buses in its fleet, which operates across Buckinghamshire, parts of Hertfordshire and Greater London, thanks to a £200,000 investment. 12 buses in the company’s fleet have been upgraded to the latest Euro VI emission standard through fitment of exhaust after-treatment technology which the firm said reduces emissions of harmful nitrous oxides by as much as 90%. The upgrade will take the number of Euro VI buses in the company’s fleet to 28, over half its total.
The upgraded vehicles will go into service this month on the Chiltern Hundreds services between High Wycombe, Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross and Uxbridge.
Phil Southall, Managing Director of Carousel Buses, said: “This significant investment is a positive step forward in our on-going commitment to introduce more sustainable modes of transport. The introduction of more ultra-low emission vehicles will further help improve air quality in our communities and is another step in helping us build back better from the Covid-19 pandemic.”
