As a bus operator within the community, we have a role to play to better the lives of our passengers. It is part of our purpose in helping Londoners to get to their destinations in an efficient, safe and effective manner.
“We are very keen on reducing our environmental footprint and are constantly looking for ‘greener’ ways of carrying out our bus operations.”

We are fully committed to minimising the impact our operations have on the communities in which they serve. That is why we introduced our first two fully electric, zero-emission bus routes in 2018 and a third in 2020.
Operating from our Shepherd’s Bush base, our electric buses are making a real contribution to emission-free public transport – and our drivers love driving them, too!
Electrification plays a critical part of our business and partnership with Transport for London (TfL). By the end of 2021, 20% of our entire fleet will be clean (fully electric), with four electric garages and 13 routes; this will make us the largest operator of electric buses across London and puts us as a leader to help TfL achieve its goals. Elsewhere in our fleet, we run a large number of hybrid diesel-electric buses, which are also much kinder to the environment than conventional diesel. Our dedication to sustainability won us a place on the shortlist of this year’s Franco-British Business Awards, an achievement of which we are justifiably proud.
