Zero Emission Mission
We're proud to celebrate our zero emission mission 2035 efforts at First Glasgow.
We’re continuing our sustainable travel roadmap by expanding our electric fleet, recently introducing 22 of our new fully electric buses in time for COP26!
We'll be bringing 126 brand new electric buses to Glasgow by March 2023 as part of a massive £60m investment in the city’s fleet. Our Caledonia Depot, the largest electric charging station in the UK, will have space to charge a whopping 300 buses!
This transformation is being supported by £35.6m in part funded by £28.2m from the Scottish Government’s Scottish Ultra Low Bus Scheme (SULEB).
Clean air is essential for our health and our wellbeing as well as being good for the planet which is why we're continuing to work hard to impove our buses and depots across Scotland.

First Glasgow: Electric Fleet
We're committed to improving air quality in our communities, whilst reducing carbon emissions.
Earlier in 2021, we announced that we're bringing 126 brand spanking new fully electric buses to Glasgow by March 2023 as part of a massive £60m investment in the city’s fleet! That’s on top of the 22 electric buses that have now arrived at our Caledonia depot.
Our new fleet of fully electric buses will save a whopping 4.4 million litres of diesel (that’s 55,000 bathtubs worth) and will remove 10,082 tonnes of CO2 per year!
Reasons to leave your car at home and travel by bus
|Clean Air: By travelling by bus you reduce congestion, and car emissions in local communities.||
Make an impact: Just one bus can take up to 75 cars off the road, easing congestion and air pollution.
Every Journey counts: If everyone switched just one car journey a month to a bus instead, that would mean up to a billion fewer car journeys, saving two million tonnes of CO2!
|Make the swap: Replacing car journeys with public transport can help reduce CO2 emissions by 42%, creating a cleaner, greener Scotland.|
|Free Time: Relax with a podcast, make plans for your free time or get a head start on your day while you travel by bus.||Improve your health: by walking to the bus stop you’ll be improving your health by being more active getting in the recommended 30 minutes of exersise.|
There are numerous reasons why it's easy to get around by bus.
