New green machines

How are we progressing?

In December 2022, we reached an exciting milestone. 21% of Metlink’s fleet is now fully electric – that’s 94 buses!

Metlink’s goal is for all core bus services to be electric by 2030, and to have an emissions-free fleet by 2035. Nine more buses will be arriving in 2023. We are tracking our progress towards bus fleet decarbonisation, and report on our emissions performance every year.   

So what effect is this having?

Our latest annual report, released September 2022, shows that Metlink’s new electric buses have resulted in cleaner air on the Golden Mile, and reduced emissions across the whole bus fleet.
