At Arriva London, we are always pleased to be at the forefront of the development and delivery of environmental solutions (see the recent Stamford Hill story). At the recent Global Clean Bus summit held in London last week, it was a New Routemaster from Arriva London’s fleet that was the centre of the photo call.

The bus had been wrapped in green by a crew from Exterion Media at Arriva London’s Edmonton Garage and delivered to City Hall for the summit.

The Global Green Bus summit, the first of its kind, was attended by all of the major bus manufacturers including Alexander Dennis, BYD, EvoBus, Mercedes, Optare, Volvo, and Wright Bus. All of them made the commitment to supporting cities in delivering fleets of new and ultra-low emission buses.

London Mayor Boris Johnson said “The iconic red double-decker bus is about to become greener than ever. I could not be more pleased that London will play host to these exciting pure electric double-deck buses. London is a world leader in clean buses but we can’t do it alone, and events like this Clean Bus Summit are key to making further progress.”
