Green Party Mayoral candidate Jenny Jones has promised to convert London’s entire bus fleet to “low emission hybrid, hydrogen or electric models by 2016”.
The Assembly Member is challenging Boris Johnson, Ken Livingstone and Brian Paddick in next month’s elections for Mayor of London.
Her fares and transport manifesto also promises that fare increases would not exceed the rate of inflation.
Ms Jones says she would replace “the arbitrary congestion charge” with a pay as you go road charge which would fund investment in public transport and improve air quality.
She has previously vowed the “non-negotiable” charge would only be introduced once businesses and other stakeholders have been consulted.
Launching her manifesto Ms Jones said: “London needs a positive vision for how our transport system can change to cope with congestion and pollution, and address the scandal of deaths on our roads.
“Instead of wasting tens of millions every year in extra subsidy for a New Bus for London, I would focus on lowering fares and making the roads safer. Instead of wasting hundreds of millions on new roads and road widening, I would focus on improving the alternatives to driving and dealing with air pollution.”
Earlier this week Jones promised to fund the introduction of 20mph zones in residential areas.
