Inverness next on Ember crusade?

Electric coach express specialist Ember has applied for planning permission to build a charging depot in Inverness.

The Scottish coach operator, which runs a growing fleet of Yutong Tce-12 battery coaches, has been expnading its services since the initial four-coach operation, with Scottish funding which will ad a further 20-plus coaches to its fleet. The plan, says Ember, is to establish long-distance electric coach services into Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fort William and Aberdeen.

“We’re also looking for further opportunities to develop a mini charging hub in Thurso so we can serve passengers who are heading all the way up or maybe those who have a bicycle and want to get back down south,” Ember co-founder Keith Bradbury told the Inverness Courier.

“We don’t have a timeline confirmed for the hub launch in Inverness but the process is under way and we are actively working on it.”
