Electric buses for First Glasgow

A bus firm is launching electric buses on a commercial route in southwestern Scotland for the first time since the 1960s.

First Glasgow said the introduction of the two vehicles was a ‘statement of intent’ as Glasgow aims to become a ‘net-zero’ city.

Trolleybuses, which took their power from overhead wires by means of a trolley on a pole, operated in Glasgow until de­com­mis­sioned in 1967.

The new buses will run on the M3 route, connecting Milton and Springburn with Stobhill Hospital and the city centre.
