Electric Buses in Manly
Last week, the NSW transport minister announced his desire to electrify Sydney's bus fleet. (www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-28/nsw-transport-minister-replace-buses-with-electric-fleet/11644694). This is a great idea because electric buses reduce local tailpipe pollution, local noise disturbance and greenhouse gas. What is Manly-Warringah doing to spearhead and facilitate this initiative given our unique exposure to climate change risk, need to protect our natural habitats and strong population growth. Given the benefits, the NBC should be pushing these common sense initiatives and leading Sydney for the benefit of its residents, not waiting for state government to decide.
