Veolia Transport NSW has taken delivery of five new vehicles: a Volgren-bodied Mercedes-Benz 0 500LE and four Custom Coach-bodied Volvo buses – three B7RLEs and one B12BLE.

The five new vehicles, delivered in June, are all Euro 5 compliant.

Veolia Transport NSW Managing Director Morris Caputi says the company is committed to investing in Euro 5 compliant vehicles to achieve greater emissions reductions in its NSW fleet.

"We want to adopt the higher standards available," Caputi says. "We could have gone to Euro 4 which was what was required under the legislation."

Instead, Veolia Transport NSW bypassed Euro 4 for Euro 5 compliant vehicles to achieve greater emissions controls. Caputi says the company has not tested the vehicles for fuel efficiency.

"We’re keen to adopt them early and do anything we need to do to make sure our services and buses to make sure we’re meeting the highest standards of emission control," he says.
