Transdev has announced that it has added three new electric buses to its New Zealand bus fleet. The three new electric buses have started running on Transdev’s Howick and Eastern services across Auckland on routes 70 and 72.

The company’s electric bus fleet now totals 16, adding to the 10 electric buses that are already running on the fully electric Metlink Airport Express in Wellington.

Transdev New Zealand Chief Officer, Peter Lensink, said: “Transdev is proud to be partnering with Auckland Transport and local bus supplier JW Group for this latest delivery, supporting sustainable public transport in Auckland. Locally and globally, we back greener transport fleets, which are better for communities, customers and provides greater job opportunities. Our goal is to help New Zealand cut emissions in half by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.”

Transport’s journey to net zero: Alternative fuel vehicles are vital to achieving climate targets, says Transdev

Auckland Transport’s Group Manager of Metro Services, Darek Koper, said: “It’s great for these communities to have these three new buses – offering improved air quality and reduced noise. It’s just a much more pleasant experience for everyone when one of these cleaner buses goes past.”

Transdev’s Howick and Eastern General Manager, Sheryll Otway, said: “Newer, cleaner and quieter vehicles is just one way our team is serving our Auckland community better. We’ll continue working together with our partners and hope to bring more electric vehicles into the network soon.”

The new buses will run across Auckland from the CBD, to Botany, Panmure, Ellerslie, Greenland and Newmarket.
