UK Power Networks has completed work at Arriva, Brixton, that will enable the garage to charge 22 electric buses overnight.

The delivery team installed new cables to provide additional power at the garage, which will deliver supplies for the ebuses operating on route 319 from Streatham Hill to Sloane Square in London.

The work is said to have reduced running costs for the bus garage, which is able to charge its new fleet when local electricity demand is low.

Louise Cheeseman, director of bus at TfL, said: “These works at Brixton garage are helping help drive forward our zero-emission bus agenda, giving bus operators the capacity to charge the significant number of vehicles now operating in London. London has one of the largest and greenest fleets in the world, but we won’t stop until every single one of the capital’s buses is zero-emission. With their smooth, quiet journeys and innovative features, zero-emission buses don’t just help reduce the effects of climate change and improve air quality – they help to make our city better for everyone and offer a great alternative to the car when getting around town.”
