A £2.3 million scheme to install electric charging points at the FirstBus depot in Bramley have been approved this week by council planners.
The new electric charging points will charge a new eco-friendly fleet of up to 173 new electric buses, which will be used in Leeds. These buses will replace existing diesel buses, so there will not be an increase of bus parking on site.
A planning application submitted by First says the yard area will be relined and see several islands with electric vehicle charging units installed to charge the new bus fleet.
First says the existing bus parking layout at the Henconner Lane depot will fundamentally be the same, with parking spread out so that the chargers can be located between.
