NSW Minister for Transport and Roads and Member for Bega, Andrew Constance, says he was pleased to see that 10 new electric buses have arrived safely at the Transit Systems Inner West Depot at Leichhardt, Sydney.

The company says it is, "…very proud to be a local Australian company delivering innovative and more environmentally sustainable transport solutions, made possible by collaboration with the future-focused government agency Transport for NSW."

It adds: "We were pleased to accept delivery of 10 new electric buses increasing our electric fleet in New South Wales to 15 - we cannot wait to take delivery of the remaining buses," it announced on social media.

As Transit Systems explains, these latest 10 buses were finished locally in Australia - the seats, lights, and stanchions (grab rails) – with the company excited about the vision of Nexport to, "…manufacture locally in the very near future."

NSW Minister for Transport and Roads and Member for Bega, Andrew Constance, says he was pleased to see that 10 new electric buses have arrived safely at the Transit Systems Inner West Depot at Leichhardt, and have swiftly and seamlessly been going into service.

"You’ll get to see and experience them on any of the Region 6 routes - quiet, comfortable and contributing to the zero-emission bus network," Minister Constance explained.

"These new buses join the fleet of five already in operation, which have recently clocked an impressive 400,000km," he added.

"Operator Transit Systems say that both drivers and passengers love the new electric bus fleet. Not only are they nice to drive, but they’re a delight to ride on!" he said.
