Metroline is the latest London operator to win a tender from TfL to operate electric buses on a central London route and has chosen the ADL/ BYD partnership to supply 23 of its 35-foot single decker model buses.

The new buses, due for delivery in Summer 2018, will be based at Metroline’s Holloway garage in north London to operate on Route 46 from Lancaster Gate station to St Bartholomew’s Hospital. BYD will supply charging equipment at Holloway and, in association with SSE, work with Metroline on related infrastructure. 

Metroline has been operating five BYD pure electric double-deckers, the world’s first, on Route 98 since May 2016. The buses, built in China and unveiled during Chinese President Xi’s historic visit to Britain in 2015, are pre-production pilot models, which have proved that electric technology works on double as well as single deck buses.
