Electric buses return to Glasgow for first time in over 50 years


Two fully-electric buses have been introduced to the streets of Glasgow, Scotland, representing the city’s first use of such transport on a commercial route in almost 53 years. 

It is the first time electric buses for commercial use have run in Scotland’s biggest city since electric trolley buses were taken offline in 1967.

In an announcement at the end of last week, operator First Glasgow said funding for the buses came through a £20 million ($25.97 million) Green Economy Fund from SP Energy Networks.

First Glasgow will also use the money to install 22 charging points at its Glasgow Caledonia Depot, which the firm said would enable it to introduce more electric buses to its fleet.
