A £50 million fund will help create England’s first town with all-electric buses, the DfT (Department for Transport) has announced.

The DfT said local authorities can bid for money to help pay for the new greener fleet.

The Secretary of State for Transport, Grant Shapps (b. 1968), said buses had ‘a crucial role to play in bringing down emissions’.

Darren Shirley, head of the Campaign for Better Transport, called it a ‘good start’ after years of cuts to services.
