Labour pledge for UK bus fleet

If it wins the general election, the Labour Party plans to make the entire UK bus fleet electric by 2030, with a £4 billion investment.

Labour said this would reduce bus emissions by more than 70%, which will cut air pollution and help tackle climate change.

Conservatives, however, claim the plans are part of ‘Labour’s war on the motorist’.

Any investment in the bus network — by whichever party wins the election — would be welcome news, as operators have cut or reduced more than 3,000 bus routes over the past 10 years, campaigners said in October.
