Aluminium City Buses
GEMILANG BYD ELECTRIC BUS (NSW)
In July 2019, we successfully delivered 4 BYD K9RA buses, with Gemilang bodies, into the NSW Metro fleet which are operated by Transit Systems West.
These are the latest tranche of full electric buses built by us for the Australian market. There are now 21 Gemilang bodied BYD electric buses in Australia.
MAN A95 DOUBLE DECK
We successfully completed this project in late 2017 in collaboration with TfNSW and MAN. 38 Double Deck vehicles are now operating in Sydney as part of the B-Line Project.
TRANSDEV 50 BUS REPLACEMENT (VIC)
We successfully won a contract for the supply of 50 Scania K310UB Gemilang buses into the Melbourne Transdev fleet in late 2018.
The project was completed in November 2019 and these buses are operating at Transdev's North Fitzroy depot in Melbourne.
We have now supplied Transdev Melbourne with over 100 buses operated by Transdev, including 4 articulated buses.
