The Scottish Government has launched phase 2 of its Scottish Zero Emission Bus Challenge Fund (ScotZEB), announcing the availability of up to 58 million GBP.
This scheme was initially introduced in 2021 to support the bus industry in transitioning to zero-direct-emission buses and infrastructure.
The second phase of this scheme now expands funding eligibility to coaches and community transport providers.
“The Scottish Government has already invested £113 million towards 548 zero-emission buses and supporting infrastructure, and I’m really pleased to now be making a further £58 million available.
“Launching the second phase of the ScotZEB Challenge Fund honours this Government’s pledge to drive forward a fully decarbonised future for Scotland’s buses; supporting operators of all sizes, including community transport, school bus and coach operators to transform their vehicles to zero-emissions and install infrastructure which can be shared with other fleets to help them make the switch too.”
ScotZEB 1 delivered 276 electric and hydrogen fuel cell buses in Scotland, bringing the country’s total to nearly 600.
