We at First Bus Bristol try to do everything we can to keep the air that we breathe as clean as possible. Hybrid technology helps, of course, but we've gone one better with two new 'virtual' electric buses that use GPS systems to make sure the buses run in completely electric mode once they're within Bristol's designated Air Quality Management Area.
