There are approximately 40,000 buses in regular operation in Great Britain, with 177 powered solely by renewable fuels. 167 of these are powered by biomethane and 10 are powered by hydrogen.

In 2019, a further 20 hydrogen buses are due to enter service in Birmingham and 110 biomethane buses are due to enter service in Bristol. All these buses have received funding from the Low Emission Bus Scheme.
