Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport Norman Baker announced recently that a number of towns and cities in England will benefit from £5 million in funding to reduce pollution from local buses.
He said: “Improving air quality is important for the coalition government. This £5 million scheme will help clean up emissions from older buses in some of our most polluted urban areas.”
“It will lead to real improvements in air quality on some of our more polluted streets, as well as helping stimulate jobs and growth in the bus and retrofit industries. In addition it will give British companies the opportunity to market new technologies to overseas bus operators and governments.”
Applications are open from 5 June, and will close on 19 July 2013.
