ACTION Going Green

By TP 3000 - 14 September 2009 21

Last month ACTION recieved its first of the 77 new buses that ACTION has purchased. This new bus is similar to some of the green buses that you seen on the road, except it runs on diesel.This bus is a MAN bus & is the first MAN Bus in the world to comply with Euro V emission standards.

Prior to tomorrow this bus has been with ACTION Workshop guys making sure it is safe for Canberra roads. But quite soon it should be on Canberra’s roads with more of these buses to follow soon.

These buses will be replacing the old Renaults that have black smoke blowing out the back.

What’s Your opinion?

Perth had three hydrogen busses operating on a three year trial on the free city loop service, I don’t know if they expanded the fleet though. Low emission oil burners are a positive move away from the old belching ones though.

Perth was part of a worldwide trial. These 3 buses are stored in a bus depot in Perth still. I am led to believe one has been transfered to a bus museum. The are currently talks going on about bringing the other 2 back into service. I have been lucky enough to have a look at these buses (in the depot mind you). They look quite nice, but have a weird inside, as the floor is the same level from front to back.

Also Beau Locks, my only issue is with some of the newer Orange buses. The seats are quite close together & I usually have my legs next to me on the seat (feet are in the air). But if you have trouble with the seats, try going for the seats near the wheelchair area & ignore anyone that bitches & moans about you taking up that extra room.
