Moray gets funding for electric bus

Announced on 13 June, Moray Council has received funding for an all-electric bus for use across the region. The bus will connect Aberlour and Forres more than 24 miles apart, making stops at villages such as Knockando and Dallas along the way.

Funding for the bus was provided by the Scottish Government’s Green Bus Fund and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Graham Leadbitter, Leader of Moray Council, said: “I am delighted that Moray is the first rural area to trial this new type of travel. We know the significant impact electric buses have had in urban areas and we are keen to demonstrate that clean, green public transport is a sustainable and economical way forward for rural areas too”.
