Bus 710 on Aikman Drive


Bus 710 was a BYD K9RA "Toro" plug-in electric bus, with Gemilang Coachworks body, which was delivered to ACTION in July 2017. This bus was one of three evaluated by Transport Canberra as part of an "alternative energy" bus trial.

Carbridge was awarded a contract to supply two fully electric buses following the failure of Geelong-based AVASS to supply buses for the trial. Bus 710 began service on 30 August 2017 and operated until early November 2018. The second evaluation vehicle (Bus 711) was delivered in March 2018.

The Toro bus is the same model as used by Carbridge for Airport carpark shuttles in Brisbane and Sydney, but Bus 710 is the first BYD to be used as a route bus in Australia.

The alternative energy bus trial also included Bus 712, a Volvo B5RLEH parallel hybrid bus.

About Us

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 424" or "TRAM 007" (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.

How to submit changes: Edit access has been restricted to protect the integrity of our data. If you would like to notify us of a change or an error, please use our Contact Us webpage.
