Roseanna welcomes arrival of cleaner, greener buses in Perth

The Scottish National Party's Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, has welcomed the launch today by Perth-based bus giant Stagecoach of a £2.5 million fleet of eco-friendly hybrid buses, saying: "I am delighted that Perth and a Perth company are in the vanguard of ensuring public transport is continuing to reduce the country's carbon footprint and encouraging greener, smarter travel.

"I understand that these new buses produce a third less carbon emissions than standard vehicles and are the first of their kind to be brought into operation in Scotland.

"I am pleased to that a £1.7million investment by Stagecoach has been backed by £800,000 of funding from the Scottish Government's Green Bus Fund.

"These new buses will mean improved comfort for passengers, improved fuel consumption for the bus company and an improved environment for everyone."
