Kinetic Adds Additional Electric Buses to Queensland’s Fleet

In partnership with the Queensland Government, Kinetic is continuing to electrify the state’s public transport network, launching an additional six battery-electric buses on the Sunshine Coast.

This increases the number of Kinetic electric buses operating in Queensland to 26, adding to those currently in operation in Cairns and on the Gold Coast. It also grows the number of zero-direct-emission vehicles operated by Kinetic on the Sunshine Coast to 11.

Kinetic Co-CEO Michael Sewards said:

“Zero-emission vehicles are the future of bussing and passengers are fully on board with the change. Tens of thousands of people have been able to experience battery-electric buses since we started introducing them into Queensland almost 12 months ago and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

“You’ve got to give people a reason to use public transport. Passengers expect reliable, safe, clean and green buses and they certainly appreciate the smooth and quiet journey as much as the positive environmental impact.

“BEBs also have a positive impact on the social fabric of our cities by reducing noise and emissions around businesses and high pedestrian areas.”

To leverage the benefits of operating electric vehicles, Kinetic has committed to running a bus network that is 100% zero-emission at tailpipe by 2035.
