Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and Transport of London (TfL) have announced three more electric-only bus routes to help tackle the capital’s toxic air.
The routes being converted to fully electric buses are: Route 46 - Paddington to St. Bartholomew's Hospital via King's Cross; Route 153 - Finsbury Park to Moorgate via Angel; and Route 214 - Highgate Village to Moorgate via Camden.
London already has over 2,500 hybrid electric buses running across the city, marking the largest electric bus fleet in Europe. The latest additions of new fully electric buses bring the total number of electric buses in London to over 170.
Khan said: “These three new fully electric bus routes will make a real difference cleaning up the air in busy parts of central London, and are another step along the way to fulfilling my ambition of making all London's buses zero emission by 2037.
“We've already opened the first of our 12 Low Emission Bus Zones, and we'll only be procuring hybrid or zero-emission double-decker buses from 2018. London's air quality is a direct cause of illness and premature death across our city, and TfL will continue to lead the way tackling our air pollution crisis head-on.”
Leon Daniels, TfL's Managing Director of Surface Transport, added: “Electric buses produce zero exhaust pipe emissions and with less noise and fewer vibrations, they offer a more comfortable ride for our customers. We're looking forward to introducing more of them across London and will continue to do all we can to improve air quality in our city.”

Your mobile phone rings at work, it’s an important call and you need to answer but when you pick up, the call drops. After a few failed call-back attempts, you realise you need to go outside to get a good connection. So off you go to return the call you can’t miss, in a way that wastes more of your time than necessary, out in the open (oh no!) it’s raining, and quite frankly you need to be getting on with that work left over from yesterday, and now the wind is making it hard to hear…
