Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on December 09, 2016, 02:44:38 AMNever mind, I went to Tuggeranong Depot today while I was out, had a good look around, but didn't see them. (original thought) So either they are at Belconnen, or already on the roads. That's what I was thinking at least till I asked someone in the ACTION office. "they don't arrive till late next week, which depot is unconfirmed"
The state government says it will consider bringing electric powered buses to the streets of Melbourne. #9News pic.twitter.com/drvDdNZQEr— Nine News Melbourne (@9NewsMelb) February 8, 2017

Quote from: Busnerd on February 09, 2017, 11:21:14 AMI would imagine it as how 'triumph' describes it. The engines are basically silent in electric buses however traction motors, air conditioning, tyres and the gearbox all still make noise.
Quote from: The Love Guru on February 10, 2017, 10:05:56 AMHmmmmm. Electric buses might be good for genetic cleansing. Kill off all the stupid people with no road sense and only those with road sense will be left to reproduce. Let's not go down the lowest common denominator route. Set the bar at a level and cull those who don't meet the minimum. Ie, pay attention when walking on to a road and don't be such an ignorant tool to expect that a vehicle will just stop because of your inattention. If it's good enough to cull Kangaroos for environmental reasons then the same should be done with people who are stupid to improve the environment in urban areas.Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
Quote from: Busnerd on February 10, 2017, 11:27:53 PMI have consulted with a smart friend who says they do not have gearbox which I was unsure if they did but he confirms they do not, so remove my gearbox noise and replace it with my other comment of traction noise.
Quote from: Stan butler on March 05, 2017, 09:49:23 PMI am still with the belief that the electric buses are not coming. I have the feeling that someone in government has changed their mind about them.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on March 19, 2017, 05:27:32 PMOk, so the news I have now from calling ACTION is that they have the buses (which depot was not disclosed), but they're holding off from the trial as they're fixing up the buses specifics and stuff so they are road ready. So any press release or whatever is not yet happening. The women I spoke to said that the trial may even be starting in April, but she said she'll update me soon if anything changes.

QuoteThey have 'them'
QuoteThey would have by now had the buses if they'd given us this extension but obviously because they cancelled the contract we haven't emphasised that project, so they're not ready now, but they would have been
