Air Quality report
The air-quality debate is nothing short of a game changer in the bus industry. The industry is leading the way on cleaner diesel engines and real-world testing.
We have come a long way from just three years ago...
Brighton & Hove: The Clean Air City
(A summary of our report. For full report see bottom of page)
In this report we intend to set out a blueprint for the role of a bus service as sustainable transport in the context of a long-term vision for Brighton & Hove with the potential to deliver the city of the future.
It is hoped this report will inform officers working on sustainable transport strategies a greater understanding and help inform any important decisions. It takes into account - and contributes to - the vision for the city being developed by the Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership, Brighton Connected and Brighton & Hove City Council.
This paper lays out how the city's main bus operator (alongside other operators), the city council and other partners can deliver a sustainable transport system for the future.
BRIGHTON & HOVE BUSES TAKES ACTION
The bus service is the most sustainable form of mass transit inside the city as one full double decker can take up to 75 cars off the road.
Today's brand new state-of-the-art Mycro Hybrid buses are nearly emissions free - so far 1/3rd of our current fleet is made up of these buses.
The company works closely and well with Brighton and Hove City Council and is wholly committed to operating in a safe, socially and environmentally-responsible way.
PROPOSAL FOR BEHAVIOUR CHANGE
A public health-driven communications campaign over a sustained period could support the sort of behaviour change we need to deliver a clean air city.
PROPOSAL FOR AN AMBITIOUS NEW VISION FOR THE CITY
We would encourage the council and its partners to develop an ambitious vision to be one of Europe's leading cities for clean air living...with community, connectivity and sustainability at its heart.
THE BUS COMPANY'S PLEDGE
Continue to replace older model buses with latest generation nearly emissions-free buses in the short term and started exploring advanced buses that drive in pure electric mode in air quality-sensitive areas.
