Air-filtering bus takes to the streets in the UK

UK transport operator Go-Ahead has launched a bus with a rooftop filter that removes air pollution as it travels.Go-Ahead, which runs buses in a number of regions outside the capital, launched the air-filtering vehicle yesterday in the southern English city of Southampton.The prototype bus is fitted with a filtration system designed by Pall Aerospace for use in planes and marine vessels.Buses can be “solution to the air quality problem”The barrier-type filtration system, on the bus’s roof, removes particulate pollution from the surrounding air and traps it. At the same time, it blows clean air behind the bus as it drives.

“We want this pilot to show that buses should be looked at as not just the solution to congestion in cities, but also as a solution to the air quality problem,” said Go-Ahead chief executive David Brown.

Filter will have no impact on the passenger experience

Go-Ahead chose to launch the prototype in Southampton because it is one of the UK’s worst cities for air pollution, according to figures from the World Health Organisation(WHO).

The company said the filter will have no impact on the passenger or travel experience.

The bus is part of the effort to tackle ballooning air pollution levels around the world. The WHO considers air pollution to be the world’s largest single environmental health risk, linked to one in eight total global deaths — some 7 million people — in 2012.
