Adelaide Metro tram system, Glenelg

The South Australian Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) has opened a new tender for industry submissions, via a business case, to help develop technology solutions to boost the state’s public transport to zero emissions. 

DIT is taking the latest step towards delivering a cleaner, greener public transport system with the release of a tender for Feasibility Studies and Business Cases for the Transition to Zero-Emission Public Transport.

This tender will build on work already being done to transition the state’s public transport network, including the delivery of Adelaide Metro’s first full-battery electric bus in January 2023, and transition from a diesel to a hybrid bus fleet.

Advice on the implications of an accelerated rate of electric bus uptake from 2025 will be considered, as part of the Department’s target to make South Australia’s bus fleet 100 per cent electric by 2050.

A feasibility and technology study is also required to determine future technology options for powering trains on the Belair, Outer Harbor and Grange lines.

The tender can be viewed here.
