All-electric shuttle buses land at Glasgow Airport10 October 2019

Glasgow Airport has taken delivery of three Enviro200EV battery-powered buses to replace diesel buses on its shuttle operation for the long-stay car park – making it the first airport in the UK to switch to all-electric car park shuttles.

The Enviro200EV is supplied by BYD and Alexander Dennis (ADL), with the BYD-ADL partnership also supplying the charging infrastructure. The deal was part-funded by Transport Scotland’s Green Bus Fund.

The Enviro200EV has been adapted to meet the needs of the airport operation: 10.8m long and with two doors, the vehicles have three-tier luggage racking as well as 23 seats and a wheelchair space.

Mark Johnston, Glasgow Airport’s managing director, says: “The environmental benefits and considerable cost reductions associated with the introduction of these electric vehicles was very attractive.

“Moving to a full-electric bus operation cuts the carbon emissions associated with passenger travel to and from our car park from 143 tonnes per year to zero, and this significant reduction is further supported by the fact that the airport’s electricity is also supplied via renewable energy.”
