Local MP Iain Stewart has urged the Government to bring a new zero carbon buses scheme to the streets of Milton Keynes.
The Milton Keynes MPs have written to the Department for Transport backing a bid from MK in the ZEBRA initiative (Zero Emission Bus Regional Assessment) and Milton Keynes has been selected under the fast track process to progress to Phase 2 of the competition.
Under this Conservative Government MK has already become a hub for innovation with trials of autonomous vehicles, e-scooters and the introduction of delivery robots so the MK South MP is hoping for further success with zero emissions buses.
Iain Stewart, the MP for Milton Keynes South, commented:
"I truly believe that Milton Keynes is an ideal place for the zero emission buses to be implemented.
"By having this scheme, it will allow MK to continue being at the forefront of innovation whilst doing our bit to cut carbon emissions and combat climate change.
"That is why I, along with Ben Everitt MP, wrote to the Department for Transport to voice our support for MK's application in hopes that we will be successful."
