Shifting from private passenger vehicle use to zero emissions public transport will help curb Australia’s rising transport emissions. When considering other factors, such as population growth – particularly in urban areas – and the significant non-CO2 pollutant emissions associated with traditional diesel buses, it is clear that electrification of buses should be a central pillar of any transport decarbonisation strategy.
“Next stop: Zero emissions buses by 2030” has been authored by Audrey Quicke and Sienna Parrott of The Australia Institute. According to the report, to reduce rising transport emissions, policies to support the electrification of public transport bus fleets by 2030 should be prioritised. This report outlines measures that would accelerate Australia’s transition to electric buses.
