Metrobus launch buses that help improve air quality around Crawley

New, very low emissions buses have started making their first journeys out and about around Sussex and Surrey.



The Wright Euro VI Micro Hybrid StreetLite bus

Ten single-deck Wright Euro VI Micro Hybrid StreetLite buses recently arrived at our Metrobus Crawley depot and they’re making their first journeys with passengers this week. 

These buses emit up to 98% lower levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx), which are created during fuel combustion and can pollute the air. This means the new buses will improve local air quality. 

Because these buses use stop-start technology, there are no emissions at bus stops as their engines aren’t idling. It also means we can cut fuel use by up to 10%. 

Four of these UK-built buses are on the Horsham-Crawley-Gatwick route 200 and six on routes 430 and 435, around Reigate, Redhill and Merstham. The ten buses cost £1.7 million. 

They’re not just incredibly clean and fuel efficient, the StreetLites also have free Wi-Fi and USB charging points at every seat, as well as infotainment TV screens showing route and service information. 

Metrobus’ Commercial Director Nick Hill said:

“We’ve been taking practical steps to address climate change and improve air quality locally, cutting our fossil fuel consumption and reducing our carbon emissions, by investing millions in very low emissions buses like these ones.  

“But they’re not just cleaner, they’re also more comfortable and convenient for our passengers.”
