Newport Transport launched the country’s first electric bus fleet in 2020, bringing its total to 16, with another 16 on the way in March. This year, it intends to convert half of its 100-strong fleet to electric. However, these are Wales’ only two substantial ZE fleets. Even Swansea, Wales’ second-largest city, lacks such a provision, and the city council is unaware of any proposals by private operators to modify it. According to a spokeswoman for the Welsh government: “Over the next year, we will work with the public sector to create a funding scheme to support the transition to electric buses. In the meantime, we have provided grants to local authorities for projects that will see zero-emission buses replace diesel buses on major Welsh routes.”
