Transdev Blazefield commits £21 million to new electric bus order

Transdev Blazefield

A total of 39 new electric buses from two suppliers have been ordered to support Transdev Blazefield’s efforts to fully electrify its fleet in Harrogate.

Transdev Blazefield – the North of England bus operator – has confirmed that it has placed orders worth £21 million for 39 new buses and to equip its depot to convert its entire Harrogate fleet to fully electric power.

The orders are supported by £7.8 million of funding from the UK Government’s Zero Emission Bus Regional Areas (ZEBRA) funding, following a successful bid by Transdev’s partner, North Yorkshire Council.

Transdev’s new vehicle orders follow successful trials of several types of all-electric buses on three varied routes in and around Harrogate, and on its high-frequency Shuttle route linking Bradford and Keighley.
