I whole-heartedly welcome the news that Dundee has been awarded a grant of £515,000 from the Department of Transport to help invest in the delivery of new dedicated charge points for electric taxis.
Dundee already leads the way in the use of electric vehicle be that through its own fleet or by currently having one of the largest electric taxi fleets in the country. I am proud that Dundee City Council had the foresight to apply for this grant, and have been the only Scottish city to benefit. It shows that we are a city embracing change and have progress at our forefront."
We need to ensure that our city’s air is clean to protect the health and environment of our communities, and this funding will help us on that journey.
