With a £2 billion investment into rail infrastructure, the ambitious MetroWest programme will revolutionise the rail network. A majority of First’s fleet is low-emission, with 99 bio-methane buses in the area – reducing emissions by up to 85%.

Additionally, a £90m investment in ‘Future Transport Zones’ has been made. This will drive low-carbon innovation by providing testing facilities for futuristic clean technologies and investing in smart technology, such as driverless cars.
