The 312 bus route Northwood Junction – South Croydon will be the first fully electric bus route in London.

A successful trial took place using two electric buses. This has given Transport for London and route operator Arriva London confidence that the technology involved will meet the demands of London’s intensively urban driving environment. Confirmation of the all-electric route means a further seven buses will be introduced.

The 312 service carries 4,700 passengers each day. The pure electric bus offers lower noise and vibration levels with zero emissions. It also significantly reduces running costs.

In addition, the introduction of the new electric buses contributes towards London mayor Boris Johnson’s plans to make central London the first Ultra Low Emission Zone, planned for 2020.

Daniel Box is a driver with Arriva London and enthuses about the electric bus: “Driving an electric bus is an exciting time for the drivers on the 312, as the electric buses are the future. It’s quite a privilege to be on the first route that’s going fully electric”

He also says: “They are very smooth and efficient and they pick up speed easily. They’re also comfy to drive and the passengers find them very comfortable as well.”

This development is a planned sustainable transport policy, championed by Boris Johnson. If you are interested in a sustainable travel plan for your organisation, let’s talk!
