When a trial of three plug-in electric buses planned for 2017 did not proceed, Transport Canberra sought tenders for “alternative energy” buses which could be evaluated for possible purchase. This vehicle, built to Transport NSW specifications in 2015, was offered for lease by Volvo.
The B5RLEH is fitted with a 4.76 litre 4-cylinder Euro V diesel engine and a 120 kW electric motor. According to reports, it uses one quarter the diesel of a control bus (model not specified).
It entered service in late August 2017 and is expected to remain with ACTION until September 2018.
ACT Bus Fleetwiki is the most comprehensive source of fleet information for Transport Canberra - both ACTION buses and Canberra Metro. Our information is presented in a number of ways: summary tables, lists and individual vehicle pages - which include a photograph and additional information. Articles are linked together through categories so that you can find all vehicles that fit certain criteria.
How to search: Enter the vehicle you are searching for into the search box in the format of "BUS 599" or "TRAM 201" (where the number is the vehicle's fleet number). Since many fleet numbers have been re-used, a sequence number will be included for each time the number has been used (e.g. BUS 350 (2) ). You can also browse through the pages and categories above.
