Alexander Dennis to deliver zero-emission buses

Alexander Dennis and BYD UK jointly announced that their electric vehicle partnership will supply four single deck buses to the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority.

The four electric BYD–Alexander Dennis Enviro200EV single deck buses will help reduce emissions inside Sheffield’s clean air zone, which launched earlier this year.

Linking destinations around the city and running up to every 10 minutes, the route provides residents and visitors with links to and from train, tram and other bus services.

The 10.2m long buses will be publicly owned by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority, which will provide them to the bus company chosen to operate the service. They have been part-funded by the UK Government’s Zero-Emission Regional Bus Areas scheme.

Martin Dunleavy, regional sales manager at Alexander Dennis, said: “The new electric buses will be supported by our aftermarket team based locally in South Yorkshire at our AD24 service centre in Anston.”
