Transport funding and bids
We regularly bid for external funding to improve local transport.
Current bid applications
Ultra-Low Emission Bus Scheme Fund 2018
In spring 2018 the Government announced the Ultra-Low Emission Bus Scheme (ULEBS). This builds on the success of the Green Bus Fund, which ran from 2009 to 2013 and the Low Emission Bus Scheme which ran from 2015 to 2018.
The ULEBS scheme makes £48m available for local authorities and bus operators in England and Wales through a competitive bidding process.
This bid seeks to support our vision by providing four electric buses and associated infrastructure. This will enable the continued introduction of ultra-low emission vehicles within Nottinghamshire.
This bid will encourage increased use of public transport to address air quality issues across Mansfield and Rushcliffe.
Awards are expected to be announced in September 2018.
