Sam Greer, Engineering Director for Stagecoach, said:

“We're excited to be announcing our largest electric vehicle order to date, which will be a major step forward in improving air quality across the region. This builds further on the investment being made by Stagecoach across the country to support the transition to a zero-emission bus fleet.”

This order is funded by a 37.2 million GBP investment from Stagecoach, which is matched by 37.5 million GBP from Greater Manchester’s successful Zero Emission Bus Regional Areas (ZEBRA) bid.

In addition, 12.5 million GBP has been provided from Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM)/ the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA).
