New Wrightbus electric buses are Transport UK London Bus’ latest zero-emission vehicles in the capital

Transport UK London Bus (formerly Abellio) has mobilised its latest Transport for London contract for route E6, adding to its portfolio of over 60 routes in the city. The route operates from Transport UK London Bus’ Hayes depot, which opened in 2022 and runs from Greenford Broadway to Bulls Bridge.

The operator says it is delighted to continue its zero-emission journey in the capital by mobilising the route with new-look Wrightbus GB Kite Electroliner BEV single-deck vehicles, which meet TfL’s latest bus safety standards, including front and nearside blind spot warnings, a tyre pressure monitoring system, an automated emergency braking system, and a dynamic stability test.

The buses also feature high-back seats, and high-resolution digital signage on board shares a range of real-time information with customers. Commercial Director Alastair Willis said: “We are delighted to mobilise the new contract on route E6 on behalf of Transport for London and operate these state-of-the-art electric buses from our Hayes depot. It is a pleasure to serve our customers with more zero-emission journeys.”
