The Scottish Government has announced cash to help put more green buses on the roads.
Transport Minister Keith Brown said five companies will get grants totalling just under £1.8 million to help buy environmentally friendly hybrid buses.
That will help fund the purchase of 26 of the vehicles which have a conventional engine and an electric motor.
Mr Brown announced the grants as he visited the depot of Henderson's Travel in Hamilton.
The company is one of those to benefit from the second round of cash from the Scottish Government's Green Bus Fund, with National Express Dundee, Lothian Buses, MacEwen's Coach Services and Deveron Coaches also receiving money.
Cash from the same fund last year helped five firms purchase 48 of the environmentally friendly vehicles.
Mr Brown said: "This is another clear indication of our support and commitment to the bus industry in Scotland. Early indications from the use of vehicles bought in the first phase are showing substantial fuel savings and reduced emissions.
"This round of investment will build on these successes and commits further funding to help our bus industry invest in the latest emission-reducing technology."
Henderson's Travel boss John Henderson said: "These hybrid vehicles are central to our policy of operating economical, environmentally friendly vehicles which is particularly important during these times of high fuel prices."
Ian Craig, managing director of Edinburgh-based Lothian Buses, said: "As a company, we are always looking for ways to offer greener and more sustainable travel to our passengers. This funding from the Scottish Government's Green Bus Fund will allow us to invest in a new fleet of greener buses that will help Scotland achieve its carbon reduction targets and offer a low-carbon public transport option."
