Electric bus service set to begin

An electric bus will start work on the roads of Newport, southeastern Wales, this week, the first such vehicle of its kind in the country.

Newport Transport has bought a former demonstration vehicle, which will become the first electric bus used in Wales on a permanent basis.

Newport, along with Cardiff and Caerphilly in southern Wales, has won funding from a UK government grant scheme to promote greener public transport.

In 2020, the city will receive 14 more electric buses; a further 36 will go to Cardiff and Caerphilly will receive an additional 16.
