NSW Enters New Gear in Zero Emissions Bus Transition
22nd June 2022
The state will continue investing in zero emission bus technology to increase the timespan of the transition
The New South Wales government has announced it will invest $218.9 million over the next seven years to support the bus fleet’s move to zero emissions technology.
The funding has been confirmed as part of the 2022-23 state budget, with the government confirming a rollout plan that prioritises sustainability and local manufacturing when making the transition.
NSW treasurer Matt Kean says the state government will continue to set aside almost $2 billion to begin the transition of more than 8,000 buses across the state so that NSW has a fully transitioned fleet by 2047.
