sas: excellent find. Hopefully Optare should get the electrics from York and Notts given previous links to news. Unfortunately BYD - China seem to be supplying London with electric buses.

Anyone else care to suggest which companies may get which bus orders? The other electrics for Manchester?

Green Bus Fund Round 4 - 27/05/13
28 May '13
£12 million green boost to buses
Bus journeys in England are about to get greener as the Transport Minister Norman Baker announces a ?12 million fund will buy a further 213 low carbon buses.

The £12 million fund is awarded to bus companies around the country as the Department for Transport announces winning bids in the fourth round of the Green Bus Fund. In total, the four rounds of the fund, worth ?87m, will have delivered more than 1,200 new low carbon buses in England-saving around 28,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

The Government is paying up to half the cost difference between low carbon diesel-hybrid and biomethane gas buses and their standard diesel equivalent. Five bus manufacturers- Alexander Dennis Limited, BYD, Optare, Scania and Volvo-will benefit from orders for their new, low emission, electric, hybrid and gas buses, including companies which assemble their products here in the UK.

Winning bus operators who will add 83 single-decker and 130 double-decker buses to their fleets, are spread across England and include Stagecoach and First Group. The local councils involved in the initiative include the City of York, Greater Manchester, Nottingham City and Transport for London.

Local Transport Minister Norman Baker said: "Buses are an essential part of people's day-to-day lives up and down the country and are a key tool for enabling economic growth. At the same time, we want this growth to be green, which is why we are investing in these brand new low carbon buses.

"The last three rounds of the Green Bus Fund have shown that bus operators and local authorities are keen to invest in environmentally friendly technology, and it is encouraging to see this strong interest in ultra low emission vehicles continuing through the fourth round of the Fund."

The successful bidders:
City of York Council - which will add two fully-electric single-decker buses.
Courtney Coaches - two diesel-hybrid double-decker buses.
First Berkshire - five diesel-hybrid single-decker buses.
First York - six fully-electric single-decker buses.
Nottingham City Council - 15 fully-electric single-decker buses.
Reading Transport Limited - 14 biomethane gas single-decker buses.
Selwyns Travel Limited - six diesel-hybrid single-decker buses.
Stagecoach Manchester - 38 diesel-hybrid double-decker buses.
Stagecoach North East - 17 biomethane gas single-decker buses.
Transport for Greater Manchester - three fully-electric and 10 diesel-hybrid single-decker buses.
Transport for London - four fully-electric single-decker and 90 diesel-hybrid double-decker buses.
Yorkshire Coastliner Limited - one fully-electric single-decker bus.

Yes there Optare buses and yes a positive start tomorrow would be good. The thing that really interests me in this artical is the part where the council say that over 80% of bus traffic through York could ultimately be operated by electricity!
