Buses in York and Harrogate are to be fitted with new technology to make them greener and keep the air cleaner.

The Department for Transport has announced £1,965,500 of funding to introduce greener bus technology and cut emissions on 121 buses in Yorkshire cities including York, Harrogate, Leeds and Sheffield.

A spokesman said the upgraded buses will complete 420,000 greener journeys a year, helping to improve air quality by cutting harmful emissions by up to 90 per cent.
