“Green is GREAT” Travels Turkey

“Green is GREAT” Travels Turkey

The innov­at­ive, British-made hybrid New Bus for Lon­don (NBfL) is tour­ing the world and will be vis­it­ing selec­ted Turk­ish cit­ies in the con­text of the “GREAT” Cam­paign to meet with Turk­ish busi­nesses and public.

Tur­key is one of the stops of a global tour to take place in 4 con­tin­ents and 16 coun­tries, includ­ing India, Rus­sia and South Korea – over the next 12 months. Two of the eye-catching New Bus for London (NBfL) have been loaned by Tranport for London (TfL) to the Brit­ish gov­ern­ment to help pro­mote Brit­ish products abroad. Renowned Brit­ish designer  Thomas Heatherwick cre­ated the NBfL to share some of the design DNA of the iconic Routemaster double-decker bus. Built by Wrightbus, one of North­ern Ireland’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers, the NBfL is a pub­lic trans­port vehicle for the 21st cen­tury. The NBfL is fully access­ible to the dis­abled and uses the latest green diesel-electric hybrid tech­no­logy to increase fuel effi­ciency. It pro­duces half the car­bon diox­ide of a con­ven­tional diesel bus. The new bus incor­por­ates the most innov­at­ive and cut­ting edge hybrid tech­no­logy and is the most envir­on­ment­ally friendly bus of its kind.
