Translink launches new zero emission bus fleet

Translink has unveiled its new zero emission Foyle Metro bus fleet in Derry – showcasing the new range of single and double decker buses.

The 38-vehicle fleet will be in operation later this year, making Derry one of the first cities in Ireland or the UK to run a fully zero emission urban bus service.

The zero emission Foyle Metro project forms part of Translink’s transformational plans to support the decarbonisation of transport in Northern Ireland.

The buses are being supplied by Ballymena-based manufacturer Wrightbus.

Work is also underway to install 22 electric vehicle chargers in the Pennyburn Garage in Derry, enabling 44 buses to be charged sequentially overnight, with future proofing for an additional 19 bus charging stations.
