ADL and BYD to deliver electric buses to Merseyside

Share

Although the government seems to have all but turned its back on renewable energies, emission-free public transport is becoming all the rage in the U.K. The most recent initiative is in Merseyside, where a partnership between local company Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) and China’s BYD will supply electric buses to the city.

ADL and BYD have worked together on various similar projects, however, the winning of this tender represents the first U.K. win that the partnership has had outside of the capital city of London. It won the tender from Arriva North West for the delivery of 12 Enviro200 EV buses.

The buses will run the routes around Liverpool city centre, and will be charged overnight in the depot and the garage. The buses will be able to cover between 150 and 190 miles per day, and will also have enough electricity to have USB chargers fitted for the passengers.
