NCT 451, Market St Nottingham, 13-08-2018
Orange Line 451 is followed by a Green Line example down Market St. The 53 gas buses now form a significant part of the fleet, and plans are progressing to introduce more. The problem for operators is to convince the public - and more importantly the politicians - that these are "green" vehicles. To the uninformed, or those with an agenda, they are still internal combustion engined, and the City Council in particular has made plain its preference for electric vehicles, which do appear radically different thanks to the lack of engine. The fact that electric buses simply transfer the emissions is lost on the soundbite, social media generation.
