Training is underway to convert one of south east London’s busiest bus routes into electric operation.
The 132 runs from North Greenwich station to Bexleyheath via Eltham by Go-Ahead.
The change marks the latest bus route switch to electric buses. The 180 now running from North Greenwich to Erith has seen many – but not all – buses converted to electric operation.
Buses to be used on the route are EV400s.
In 2020 Greenwich council planned to spend £1.2 million enhancing the frequency of the 132 route. However checking now shows the decision marked as “deleted”.
A report on the issue appears to no longer be available.
The route spans both Greenwich and Bexley borough’s but there was no word on whether Bexley would fund any enhancement.
