  • Mybus yellow school buses are now cleaner and greener

    Over the summer, 119 Mybuses were fitted with clean bus technology to reduce emissions and make them better for the environment.

    In addition, every yellow bus has been fitted with a system that helps the drivers to drive in a more fuel-friendly manner, so burning less fuel and reducing pollution to the environment.

    In order to complete project, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) were successful in getting £1m as part of a ‘Clean Bus Technology’ grant from the Department for Transport.  In addition to this (WYCA) matched the £1m with a further £800,000.
