Still 116 non-wheelchair accessible buses - 2-3 years at current replacement, unless the opening of LR allows them to bulk retire a group.

I assume some of those 95 orders would have been delivered throughout the year (eg. A bus ordered on 1 July 2018).

Interestingly zero comment on electric buses despite the Randwick electric trial that was part of the Libs election platform, and even broader statements more recently.

Wouldn't have known that the 379 is a headway service.

I presume there are further plans for headway services on other corridors later?

Presumably the short-running Bondi Jn-North Bondi and Seven Ways-Bondi Jn only. There'd be a timetable-managed service to run the full route.

I think the minister has addressed that issue elsewhere.

Not surprising really, Constance made statement re electrics on 28 October, the annual report was signed off on 31 October and would have closed off for proof reading sometime before.

Yes. It I thought there should have been some planning of the Randwick trial/ possibly now larger installation.

Correct. Bronte to BJI & BJI to Bronte are also highly patronised during the peak periods.

The electric bus trial for STA Randwick Depot was published in the Daily telegraph on March 16, 2019. The initial plan is to trial 10 x buses and with intention to convert the entire depot into a 100% electric bus depot. The early planning stages only commenced towards then end of the financial year so therefore there was nothing noteworthy to add to the annual report. There was a small group of STA staff who attended TSA Leichhardt Depot in September as a part of the research process for the electric bus trial at Randwick Depot.

Parliamentary Budget Office - Election Policy Costing (13/03/2019)
Electric bus trial for Randwick Depot.

https://www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/pbo/Documents/2019%20Coalition%20Election%20Policy%20Costings/Y095%20-%20Costing.pdf

The policy proposes to allocate $10 million in capped funding to test the feasibility of transitioning bus depots to partial or full electric operations. This policy
is part of the Electric and Hybrid Vehicle and is not included in the NSW Budget, so it will have an impact of $10 million over the forward estimates. The
policy provides funding for 2019-20 and 2020-21. Under the policy, Randwick Bus Depot would be subject to the feasibility testing. The funding would be used
for ten electric buses and associated infrastructure (such as charging stations), maintenance and electricity costs. Five buses and their associated infrastructure
will be purchased each year in 2019-20 and 2020-21.

Based on the $10 million capped amount, the PBO estimates that the buses will cost $7.5 million and infrastructure will cost approximately $1.9 million over
the two years. The infrastructure costs are based on a previous NSW investment of $2 million for charging points in commuter car parks around Sydney. The
remaining $571,000 is for maintenance and electricity. The costs of the buses and infrastructure have been depreciated over a useful life of 25 years on a straight
line basis. The PBO notes that the funding profile may vary depending on the availability of buses and infrastructure. Additionally, there may be a need for supporting infrastructure such as charging stations to be purchased prior to the buses, which would vary the funding profile. The PBO also notes there may be potential
savings from the trial if older diesel buses are replaced, due to lower operating and maintenance costs for electric vehicles.

3.4. TfNSW Electric Buses and Depot Trial (Randwick)
The market sounding for an Automated Bus Service Trial and a Zero Emissions Bus (ZEB) Services Trial in Sydney is complete. TfNSW has advised that they had met
with approximately 60 interested parties and that the learnings will inform the trial of 10 electric buses at STA’s Randwick Bus Depot as part of the Government’s
Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Plan. There is also a trial of four electric buses in Sydney Region 6.
