These electric buses will be joining the existing fleet of single and double deck electric buses.
Twenty new three-door, single-deck electric buses will be rolled out from Wednesday (Aug 25). These buses will join the Land Transport Authority’s flagship fleet of 40 single and double-deck electric buses.
This is in line with LTA’s commitment to having a 100 per cent cleaner energy bus fleet by 2040 and purchasing only cleaner energy buses.
These additions will help LTA understand better how electric buses work and help them better plan for more similar public transportation.
These electric buses are beneficial not only for the environment but also for passengers.
They allow for quieter bus journeys, and have more commuter-friendly features such as passenger information display systems to show route-specific information such as upcoming bus stops and destinations. Besides that, the front doors of these buses have easier access for parents with strollers.
These new buses use pantograph chargers to power up the buses within 10 to 15 minutes.
If you’re a bus enthusiast and interested in seeing how the three-door, electric buses look, you can take a ride on one of these new buses on services 38, 40, 176 and 976.
