London is being left behind in the adoption of electric buses

A new report by the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon reveals:

  • Mayor of London has repeatedly made inaccurate and misleading statements in comparing the adoption of electric buses in London with other cities
  • London now lags behind a number of cities in its current adoption of electric buses
  • Every five weeks China deploys 9,500 electric buses onto its roads – matching the entire size of London’s current bus fleet

London has a long way to go in making our roads safer for everyone

Questions to the Mayor of London by Caroline Pidgeon, the Liberal Democrat Londonwide Assembly Member, have revealed:

  • Between 1 January 2016 to 30 November 2018 there were 71 recorded bus collisions involving pedestrians at a designated pedestrian crossing.
  • Collisions involving buses at pedestrian crossings are taking place in London almost every fortnight on average
  • Pedestrian collisions involving buses have taken place in almost every London Borough
