Poll: Do you like the new electric buses?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

An “extra large” sized electric bus designed especially for New Zealand has been handed over in Auckland.

The 78-passenger Yutong E13 has a double rear-axle, like the largest diesel-powered single-decker buses, and carries bigger and more powerful batteries to increase its daily range.

An “extra large” sized electric bus designed especially for New Zealand has been handed over in Auckland.

The 78-passenger Yutong E13 has a double rear-axle, like the largest diesel-powered single-decker buses, and carries bigger and more powerful batteries to increase its daily range.

Auckland Transport has bought the bus to trial initially on long-haul eastern routes such as the 70 service from Botany to the CBD.

The new bus is bigger than the models currently entering service around Auckland, and the extra axle is expected to reduce wear and tear on the roads.

Please type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in our conversations section of the community paper.

The Cancer Society is pleased new vaping laws will finally put an end to the marketing of highly addictive products to children and non-smokers.

From November 11, it will be illegal to sell vapes to under 18’s and advertising and sponsorship of vaping products will be banned altogether. Vaping will also be banned in legislated smoke-free areas such as:

- indoor workplaces
- cafes and pubs
- schools and early childhood centres
- public transport.

We think that everyone, especially parents need to be aware that vapes are now R18 and can’t be used in schools.
