Tweed school bus routes will soon be serviced by two new electric buses as part of a trial of zero emission bus technology in regional NSW. 

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest MP said he was looking forward to seeing the two new vehicles on Tweed roads. 

“Seventeen primary and high schools across eight different school routes in Banora Point, Bilambil, Carool, Cudgen, Kingscliff, Murwillumbah, Tweed Heads South, Terranora and Tumbulgum will be serviced by the two electric buses during the trial,” Mr Provest said. 

“This is an exciting development for the Tweed’s bus network serviced by Kinetic, with zero emission buses reducing harmful exhaust fumes and improving air quality. 

“Electric buses are also less noisy than their diesel-operated counterparts and provide a smoother journey for passengers. 

“This trial will help inform the future roll-out of zero emission buses in NSW, with passenger and community feedback an important part of this process. 

“I welcome the trial of these buses in the Tweed as the state’s regional bus fleet transitions to zero emissions by 2047. 

“Vehicle dealership VDI Australia has been awarded the contract to deliver the electric buses and I hope to receive a trial start date soon.”
