Call for evidence

4 Apr 2022

Ending the sale of new, non-zero emission buses, coaches and minibuses

The Department for Transport (DfT) is ​seeking feedback on proposals to progress ending the sale of new non-zero emission buses.

DfT is also launching a call for evidence on phasing out the sale of new, non-zero emission coaches and minibuses. They are inviting views on:

  • the challenges of transitioning to zero emission coaches and minibuses
  • what would need to be true or in place to withdraw the sale of these vehicles
  • what government could do to accelerate the transition to zero emission coaches and minibuses
  • setting a realistic date to end the sale of these vehicles

This consultation follows on from an initial consultation on ending the sale of new diesel buses, which ran from 15 March 2021 to 11 April 2021.

The consultation closes on 21 May 2022 and can be responded to by email to: buses@dft.gov.uk, or by writing to Bus, coach and minibus phase out consultation, Zero Emission Bus and Coach Policy
3rd Floor, Great Minster House, 33 Horseferry Road, London SW1P 4DR
