ACTION bus service—bike racks (Question No 55)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 29 November 2012:

(1) How many ACTION buses, by type, are currently fitted with bike racks.

(2) How many ACTION buses by type, are scheduled to be fitted with bike racks and when will these bike racks be operational.

(3) How many ACTION buses (a) cannot and (b) will not be fitted with bike racks and why.

Mr Rattenbury: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) There are 330 buses or 81.88% of ACTION's in-service fleet currently fitted with bike racks. This includes:

      •     117 Renault PR100.2 rigid buses

      •     36 Renault PR100.3 rigid buses

      •     89 MAN diesel rigid buses

      •     16 MAN CNG rigid buses

      •     53 Scania CNG rigid buses, and

      •     19 Irisbus Agoraline rigid buses.

Note: The makeup of ACTION's in-service fleet regularly changes due to operational requirements such as new buses entering the fleet, older buses retiring from service and vehicles requiring major repairs being out of service.

(2) As at 29 November 2012, all buses in ACTION's in-service fleet that can be fitted with bike racks have been fitted.

(3) There are 73 buses in ACTION's in-service fleet that cannot be fitted with bike racks. These are:

      •     26 Scania Steer Tag buses - cannot be fitted due to maximum length restrictions

      •     25 Renault PR180.2 articulated buses - cannot be fitted due to maximum length restrictions

      •     eight Scania KUA articulated buses - cannot be fitted due to maximum length restrictions, and

      •     14 Dennis Dart Midi buses - cannot be fitted due to the structural integrity of the bus as there is no physical chassis/body to which the bike rack can be attached.
