Minutes:

Members considered a report which provided details of the result of the evaluation of the tenders received for the provision of the Park & Ride bus service. 

 

The new contract introduced 3 electric buses to the Park & Ride network and all diesel buses used on the Park & Ride would be to Euro 6 standards.  It was noted that the provision of a successful and efficient Park & Ride service reduced congestion and improved air quality in the City centre and saved 4 million car visits per year.  The winning supplier’s proposals included the provision of new buses, additional capacity, and improved emissions standards. 

 

An additional recommendation in relation to the pursuit of funding opportunities for low emission and electric vehicles was proposed and agreed and included as recommendation (f).
