Red Bus is trialling Christchurch’s first electric bus for two months

 

Red Bus is introducing the city’s first electric bus on its urban routes from 4 March as part of a two-month trial.

The bus has a CRRC drive system, chassis and batteries, with the body built by Kiwi Bus Builders in Tauranga.

The trial will provide the Red Bus team with valuable first-hand operational experience of battery electric buses on Christchurch roads ahead of its three ADL Enviro200E electric buses arriving mid-2019.

Red Bus will monitor the bus’ performance through its telematics monitoring system which provides real-time feedback on acceleration, braking, cornering and speed; as well as driver and customer feedback.

Schedule 

Week beginning 18 March & 25 March 2019

This trial service timetable is subject to change due to operational requirements.
