Since February 2020, an estimated 4,200 ZEBs have been funded across the UK.

The first round of the Zero Emission Bus Regional Areas (ZEBRA) scheme provided £270m funding to 16 local transport authorities in England outside London. The scheme will fund up to 1,309 zero emission buses, though this is subject to change as projects are progressed by local transport authorities. The second round of the scheme was launched in September, with £129m funding to be provided to schemes by March 2024.
