Hybrid Buses

The buses we use on services 4, 5 and 6 are low-floor electric hybrids. 

 

What is a hybrid?

In the case of our hybrids - the power comes from a traditional diesel engine and a highly sophisticated battery system. 

How is it different to a normal bus?

In our electric-hybrid buses energy from braking is captured using a motor and converted to electricity stored in the batteries on board. This capture of regenerative brake energy makes the hybrid particularly efficient. 

How much better for the environment is it? 

 The engine is running in its most efficient range at all times - meaning better fuel consumption. Low carbon buses use at least 30% less fuel and emit nearly a third less carbon dioxide than a conventional bus. 

Will I notice a difference? 

There is no gearbox on a hybrid bus, which means no gear changes so the ride is smoother and more comfortable than a standard bus. As the engine is always operating efficiently, hybrid buses tend to be a lot quieter than normal buses too, so you'll have a more relaxing journey.
