DUBLIN BUS – WRIGHTBUS STREETDECK HEV96 HYBRID DOUBLE-DECKER BUS]
The plan is to introduce 600 hybrid buses over five years.
The hybrid electric vehicles, which use diesel when not in electric mode, were purchased by the National Transport Authority (NTA) and do not need to be re-charged using plug-in connections. The first batch of new Wrightbus StreetDeck HEV 96 double-decker buses will be based in the Conyngham Road Depot. Additional hybrid-type vehicles have also been ordered from ADL and Volvo.
