The zero emission buses were built locally in Falkirk by ADL in partnership with BYD as the manufacturer’s partner for electric buses in the UK and Ireland.

Locally headquartered, low carbon energy company SSE are partnering with Stagecoach to deliver the new electrical infrastructure at Perth depot.

Not only do Stagecoach’s new buses benefit the planet by not having exhaust emissions, but they are also quieter and have USB charging points at each seat as well as interior LED lights and contactless payment facilities to create a relaxing experience for passengers.

Stagecoach is introducing a total of 46 new fully electric buses in key transport networks in Aberdeen, Kilmarnock and Perth as part of SULEBS, all of which are supplied by the BYD ADL partnership. SULEBS helps bus companies invest in electric vehicles and associated infrastructure to support a green recovery out of the coronavirus pandemic, improve air quality and advance Scotland’s ambitions for a net zero economy. The Scottish Government has set a legally binding target to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.
