ACTION bus service—hybrid electric buses (Question No 2302)

Ms Bresnan asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 3 May 2012:

(1) What additional infrastructure would be required in the ACT, such as at interchanges or depots, to accommodate hybrid electric buses in the ACTION fleet.

(2) Can the Minister provide any cost modelling the Government has done for this additional infrastructure.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) No additional infrastructure at interchanges or depots is required to operate diesel electric hybrid buses in-service. However, additional training, tools and equipment are required to safely maintain the battery packs when the vehicle is in the workshops for maintenance.

(2) No. However, the ACT Government is monitoring hybrid bus trials currently underway in other States.
