London Set to Go 100% Electric with RATP Dev

McDonald Transit parent company RATP Dev, which currently operates 243 hybrid buses in London and 630 similar models on the streets of Paris, will operate two, full-electric bus routes for Transport for London (TfL) by 2018.

This technological advancement demonstrates the McDonald Transit and RAPT Dev commitment to providing communities throughout the world with environmentally friendly transportation solutions.

A total of 36 zero-emission electric buses will ride along the C1 and 70 bus routes, which fall under the new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) announced by London Mayor Sadiq Khan last year.

The infrastructure needed to park and charge the electric buses at Shepard’s Bush depot will be developed by RATP Dev, which aims to convert the West London site into the capital’s first all-electric fleet bus depot.

TfL managing director of surface transport Leon Daniels said: “We’re delighted to be working with RATP Dev to deliver greener buses for this city. They will help improve air quality and offer a better journey experience for customers. This is a momentous time as we help deliver the Mayor’s vision for cleaner, safer transport network.”
