Borders Buses, which runs a service in Berwick, has introduced the UK’s first hybrid coach to its network on a four-week trial.

The Irizar i4H is the first coach in the UK to have class II hybrid technology for short to medium distance trips.

The vehicle is designed to reduce fuel consumption by more than 20 per cent, resulting in reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and improvements in local air quality.

Sharon Morrison, commercial manager at Borders Buses said: “Testing a range of vehicles whilst speaking with our drivers, engineers and customers is a great way to ensure we remain focused on delivering a modern, reliable and greener bus service.
