Transport UK London Bus (formerly known as Abellio London) will celebrate the mobilisation of a fully electric fleet on Route 306  in London on 13 April, as the route begins full operation from the operator’s Battersea depot.

Route 306’s mobilisation in West London will be supported by an all-new fully EV fleet of Wrightbus Electroliners. The number of e-buses to be deployed in oddly not specified.

Transport UK London Bus is expanding its zero-emission fleet across its six depots, all of which are now enabled for EV routes.

Route 306 becomes electric in London

The buses have high-back seats throughout, making longer journeys more comfortable. USB chargers and mobile phone holders are featured in the seats, allowing customers to stay connected while travelling.

Seating has been carefully designed to be comfortable and accessible, with priority seats highlighted. Digital signage on board the buses shares a range of real-time information, including the time to the next stop, disruptions, space on the next bus, and service updates for Tube, Overground, and DLR services. There is dedicated signage for the wheelchair area, making it easier for customers in this space to access the information they need.

Alastair Willis, Head of Commercial, Transport UK London Bus, said: “We are delighted to mobilise Route 306 as a fully EV service on behalf of Transport for London. These new state-of-the-art buses will give our customers cleaner and more comfortable journeys.”
