Pelican Engineering, which is the exclusive supplier of Yutong zero emission bus and coach models in the UK, launched a new industry group, ‘Team Zero’ at an event in Glasgow ahead of COP26. Attended by directors of both Yutong and Pelican Engineering, as well as representatives of eight leading operators, the event demonstrated the importance of cooperation between vehicle manufacturers and operators.
Head of Yutong Bus UK at Pelican, Ian Downie, says: “We have been working on developing a collaborative platform for our zero emission passenger vehicle customers for some time. The network will bring together our customers across England, Wales and Scotland with the intention of supporting their move to clean passenger transport technology.
“As well as providing a forum for bus and coach operators to learn from one another, we also plan to provide ongoing updates and host a series of informative workshops to keep customers abreast of the latest developments and promote best practice throughout the industry.”
The group includes a number of operators and transport authorities from across the UK: Ember, First Bus, Go North East, Leicester City Council, McGill’s, Newport Bus, Roberts Travel Group, Scottish Power, Stagecoach, Transport for Wales and Westway.
