New City Bus Cleans the Air By Sucking Up Pollution As It Travels

If you take public transit, here’s some good news. This bus doesn’t just take you to where you need to go – it also cleans the air you breathe as you go. The Go-Ahead Group, which is one of the largest bus and rail operators in England, has just launched a bus that sucks up pollution as it travels. The Bluestar prototype is the first bus in the UK that can clean city air. How’s it work? It’s fitted with an air filter that collects ultra-fine pollution particles and spews out purified air at the front of the vehicle. The filter works with 99.5% efficiency.. pretty good. And according to studies conducted by the filter’s manufacturer, the bus will clean the air on its route in Southampton at a rate of 16 times per year, to a height of 10 meters.
