Government Will Spend €5 Million On Diesel Buses


Share this article


The Government has been criticised over plans to spend 5 million euro on diesel buses. Transport Minister Shane Ross says the Government will transition to a green fleet and the use of electric buses, but not until after July 2019.

 

Minister Shane Ross says it's 'very regrettable' that buses ordered and due to be delivered over the next couple of months would not be more environmentally friendly.

He said he did not know how many buses would be delivered as part of a 5 million euro spend before next July but confirmed new buses bought before then would be diesel.

The Irish Independent reports that Fianna Fail TD Robert Troy says the move means Ireland doesn't 'have a hope of meeting environmental targets' and is leaving itself 'wide open' to EU fines'.
