ZEBRA bid

ZEBRA bid

In June 2021, City of York Council submitted an expression of interest to the Department for Transport's "Zero Emission Bus Regional Areas" (ZEBRA) scheme.

If successfully awarded, £8.5m of funding from HM Government, plus £10.2m from First York, would be used to deliver 44 new electric buses and associated charging equipment. This would more than double the number of electric buses in use in the York area, helping to improve air quality by reducing diesel exhaust emissions.
