New research suggests Liverpool is the second most sustainable city for transport in the UK

New research carried out by Uswitch has revealed that Liverpool is the second most sustainable city in the UK for transport.

The city’s eco-friendly bus fleet and new scooter scheme were both significant factors in this placement.

In recent years, countries have been urged to consider the sustainability of their public transport systems – in 2017, 27% of the total EU greenhouse gas emissions came from the transport sector alone.

According to new research from, the price comparison and switching service, Liverpool is revealed to be second on the list of cities that are making the biggest commitment to sustainable public transport in the UK.

Taking a seed list of 15 UK cities, the energy team have analysed sustainability credentials based on a variety of metrics such as e-scooter legislation, sustainable transport plan, participation in European mobility week, eco-friendly buses, bicycle rental scheme and sustainable urban rail.

Liverpool took second place as the UK’s most sustainable transportation system, scoring particularly high for its eco-friendly bus fleet.

The city implemented a system of next-generation emission standard buses operating in the city centre, which have significantly lower levels of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.

The success of the recent e-scooter launch in the city has also allowed it to reach second place on the list.

Meanwhile, scoring 55 out of 60 available points, London topped the UK sustainable mobility index, owing to 2,600 diesel-electric hybrid buses which are more fuel-efficient, reduce emission by 30-40% and sustainability plan to increase trips made by foot, cycling or public transport to 80%.
