TfL Ref: FOI-2844-2223
Thank you for your request which we received on 2 February 2023, asking for information about TfL’s buses.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) and our information access policy. I can confirm TfL does hold the information you require. You specifically asked: Could you please provide the number of diesel buses that are registered pre 2015 and which are currently in service and within the current and the proposed ULEZ Zones. Our full fleet of buses operating across London now meet or exceed Euro VI emission standards, the same emissions standard as the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). Euro VI is the latest emission standard for vehicles, reducing emissions of nitrogen oxide by up to 90%. Please refer to the published bus fleet audit available via this link https://content.tfl.gov.uk/fleet-annual-audit-report-31-march-2022.pdf. The fleet is made up of low- and zero-emission (at the tailpipe) buses, including electric, hydrogen, diesel and hybrid buses, all of which meet Euro VI emission standards. An updated audit for 31 March 2023 will be published later this year.
If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
