London's famous red buses becoming greener

London's double-deck red buses are as familiar in the capital as the changing of the guards and the chimes of Big Ben.

But one thing is set to change in 2017 when hundreds of buses will become greener than ever, thanks to an anti-pollution drive by Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Khan on Friday announced 10 new Low Emission Bus Zones to tackle toxic air pollution in Britain's capital city.

The biggest ever "green bus" program will cut harmful bus emissions across a number of key routes in London by 84 percent.

It will also protect thousands of school children at 172 schools along the bus routes from being exposed to dangerous pollution.

The scheme will see all-electric or hybrid electric buses, or ultra low emission vehicles on the routes.
