Nottingham City Transport Visit

I was very impressed with the performance statistics and plans set out by the team at Nottingham City Transport when I visited earlier today – they operate fifty routes across the city providing two thirds of our public transport journeys and have an impressive 95% customer satisfaction score.

Nottingham has one of the highest bus usage levels per head of population of anywhere in the country outside London, and they’re winning awards including ‘Driver of the Year’ on the 89 purple route via Mansfield Road!

I visited to see the roll-out of the new bio-gas bus fleet on the Brown line up to Bulwell (pictured below), a programme that will help tackle poor air quality and reduce carbon emissions as well. They are taking on 67 new gas buses of the highest efficiency in 2019, and it is a credit to this 82% council-owned company that they are prioritising environmental improvements so much.
