Greening the bus fleet has begun

TransLink welcomes the first fully electric bus route to the network!

Two battery-electric buses are now operating on bus route 587 from Yarrabilba to Loganlea station as part of the push for cleaner, low-emission public transport.

A new electric bus has also been introduced to the network in the Redlands – servicing the Redlands to the Brisbane CBD. This bus is powered from solar energy sourced locally at the company's Capalaba Depot.

These electric buses are just the start, with new zero-emission buses rolling out in Logan, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Cairns in the near future.

The buses will be easy to spot too, being wrapped in specially designed 'greening the fleet' artwork.

Please keep an eye out on our website for more info.
