RATP Dev London places order for 195 electric buses in a boost to TfL’s zero emissions target

TfL’s electrification plan for London’s bus network is a key objective of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy, with all of London’s transport becoming emissions free by 2037.

RATP Dev London, one of Transport for London’s principal bus operators, announced the record order of 195 new electric buses earlier this month. Catherine Chardon, Managing Director of RATP Dev London, commented, “Electrification is a critical part of our business and partnership with Transport for London. We launched our two first 100% electric routes less than two years ago, as well as London’s first fully electric 24-hour double-decker bus route last year. By the beginning of 2022, we will operate 15 zero emission routes and have five of our garages converted to electric. This agreement will help RATP Dev London position itself as the leading electric bus services provider in the city. We are proud to work hand in hand with TfL to help London achieve its sustainability goals.”

Deliveries of the fleet will begin in the summer.
