PTA takes delivery of their 500th Volvo Bus2/03/16
In December 2015, the Public Transport Authority of Western Australia (PTA) took delivery of its 500th Volvo Bus – with another 150 to go. A notable milestone for both Volvo and PTA as their fleet now becomes well and truly modernised within the Perth metropolitan area.
The 500th bus to be delivered was a Volvo B7RLE bodied by Volgren. Volvo’s B7RLE continues to be one of the market’s most fuel-efficient bus engines with low emissions and quiet operation. Amongst units delivered, PTA has also received Volvo’s Euro 6 B8RLEA articulated bus.
Volvo was also recently awarded a three year extension to their contract which will see their low-floor Euro 6 B8RLE’s join the fleet - replacing older buses in Perth’s CAT service.
