bend' electric buses that will drive Brisbane's metro They would look like modern "bi articulated buses" withthree passenger sections and two rubber lined joints, with the driver sitting in the front section.
Council is still reluctant to call them buses, arguing that while they would have rubber tyres, they would operate more like trams. Robert Dow from Rail: Back on Track said council had begun to explore two models of bi articulated buses as they shaped the tender. No decision hasbeen made. Example 2: AutoTram Extra Bus He said Brisbane commuters would be familiar with the "articulated" buses, or banana buses with one "bendy" section because there will about 30 still coach outlet coupons 1800contacts operating in south east Queensland. He said the "bi articulated" buses had two "bendy banana sections" plus the front section with the driver. "The largest running at the moment carries around 270 passengers and that is running in South America," he said. "There's another one in Sweden which carries 258," he said. "So they can easily reach 200 passengers." "They're (BCC) saying 150 passengers, but we think they will easily end up with something carrying 200 passengers per articulated bus." Mr Dow said the two routes were practical. The first between Royal Brisbane Hospital, QUT's Kelvin Grove campus, the CBD, the Mater Hospital and the University of Queensland was already popular. "It connects all the knowledge precincts up," he said. Mr Dow said the second route between Roma Street and Eight Mile Plains was also a "workhorse" along the South East Busway. "The buses coach outlet atlanta estate that the bi articulated buses displace will go out into the suburbs to feed the busways and provide better suburban connections and reduce the number of buses running through the city," he said. Will they be conventional diesel or gas, hybrid or electric? Mr Dow said council was exploring the use of electric buses, an idea it has investigatedsince 2011. "These days coach outlet umbrella sale rapid electric charging technology has really developed tremendously," he said. "And they are certainly going to look at it." Mr Dow said he believed the business case would look at conventional diesel or gas, rapid charge electric buses, or hybrid. "The way I see it happening here in Brisbane if they went full electric: at Royal Brisbane Hospital, UQ Lakes, Eight Mile Plains and Roma Street Station they would set up rapid charging stations," he said.
"So when they go out to lay off, they would go in, charge up for a few minutes and coach outlet stores japan then go back onto the route."Chris Warnock from Engineers Australia says the new Brisbane Metro was a better fit with the changed Cross River Rail project announced last Sunday by the state government.
