Plans have been submitted for a new bus garage in North Woolwich with space to accommodate 151 vehicles.
Transport company Go-Ahead are behind the plan. They have another garage located nearby. The site on Factory Road is currently vacant. Despite Go Ahead planning the development, they state it would be open to “fleets of other electrically powered vehicles, under contract or agreement from the Go Ahead Group.”
A number of routes across London are moving towards electric buses, with the 180 one of the latest routes for conversion from October 2021 – though don’t expect them to be crossing over the Woolwich ferry.
