The trial will allow the Victorian government to gain better insight into the challenges and issues that are involved with transitioning an entire bus depot to battery electric bus technology.
With its first two battery electric buses now operating in Melbourne, Kinetic begins the gradual roll-out of the 36 fully electric buses that are to join the city's public transit fleet over the next three years.
Under a new nine-and-a-half-year contract, Kinetic is now responsible for one third of Melbourne’s public bus services and will support the Victorian Government’s transition to zero-emission buses.
As part of a Victoria State Government trial programme, 1,500 e-scooters will be available to residents for a 12-month period, offering a safe, accessible, eco-friendly and cost-effective way to travel.
