Leeds Public Transport Investment Programme

A radical transformation of Leeds’ bus network will double usage within ten years and save as much CO2 per year as 23 million mature trees could absorb.

Rise in bus use in 10 years

Tonnes reduction in CO2 emissions per year

New low-emission buses

Many off-the-shelf greenhouse gas assessment tools focus solely on carbon emissions from construction, so we invested in researching and developing a bespoke tool to model the whole-life savings. This means we can be confident of the long-term contribution the project will make to achieving net zero.
