Busways to show off zero-emissions buses at Car Free Sunday

Busways is using a unique event to showcase its zero-emissions bus technology

In another event in the local region, operator Busways is showing off what a sustainable transport future can look like to communities on the upcoming Car Free Sunday.

This Sunday, Busways will join Lane Cove Council at the event at Lane Cove Village from 10AM to 1PM to show off its zero-emissions buses.

The community will get the chance to have a close look at one of Busways’ new zero-emissions buses and hear about the future of public transport.

World Car Free Day is a movement towards the use of public transport, walking and cycling over use of private vehicles, such as a car, to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality.

Busways Ryde Service Delivery Manager Kate Wallace says Car Free Sunday is a great way to remind Lane Cove locals of the benefits of using public transport.

“Studies show the health benefits for people who combine active transport options, such as walking or cycling, with the use of public transport,” Wallace says.

“Leaving the car at home can also have a big impact in congestion. A single bus can take over 42 vehicles off the road, reducing congestion and improving air quality.

“Once that bus becomes an electric bus there is a saving of around 7kg of Co2 per Km, which is a 92 per cent decrease in Co2 emissions.”

Busways is asking locals to come and have a chat to its friendly team at the Busways information stall and check out an electric bus on Sunday.

A reminder that the below road closures will occur in Lane Cove on Sunday from 6AM until 7PM:

  • Burns Bay Road from Tambourine Road to Birdswood Avenue
  • Longueville Road from Central Avenue to Birdwood Avenue.

Detours will be in place, plan ahead, visit https://transportnsw.info/trip or use Google Maps.
