RATP Dev London orders 195 e-buses from BYD/ADL16 June 2021

RATP Dev London, one of Transport for London (TfL)’s principal bus operators, has ordered a total of 195 single and double deck vehicles from BYD UK and Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL).

Deliveries of RATP Dev London’s latest BYD ADL fleet will begin in the summer. Sixty-eight BYD ADL Enviro200EV single decks – including 21 compact 10.2-metre models – and 127 BYD ADL Enviro400EV double decks will be based at RATP Dev London’s Fulwell, Harrow and Shepherd’s Bush depots to serve routes in the west of the capital. The buses will join 36 existing BYD ADL single decks in service since 2018 and 29 BYD ADL double decks delivered last year.

Catherine Chardon, Managing Director of RATP Dev London, said: “Electrification is a critical part of our business and partnership with Transport for London (TfL). We launched our two first 100% electric routes less than two years ago, as well as London’s first fully electric 24-hour double-decker bus route last year. By the beginning of 2022, we will operate 15 zero emission routes and have five of our garages converted to electric.”
