I would like to know how much is being spent on making the (New) Routemaster buses compatible with London's Low Emission Zone?

We answered

TfL Ref: FOI-2592-1617


Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 22 March 2017 asking for information about expenditure.


Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.


I can confirm we do not hold the information you require at this time.


We are currently trialling retrofit technologies that will enable us to upgrade all types of Euro V buses to the Euro VI engine emission standard. Until this process is finalised later this financial year, we cannot confirm costs for retrofitting any of these bus makes and models to the higher environmental standard. We are confident that existing technologies will fulfil this requirement on all types of makes and models as related equipment is already harnessed on brand new Euro VI buses.


Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal


Yours sincerely
