In this issue we take a look at a couple of technology adopters with a story on Carbridge’s BYD electric Toro buses and also a story on the Latrobe Valley Bus Lines which has gone the hybrid route with a small fleet of Volvo Hybrids. In a more conventional; sense we visit the Deluxe Coaches fleet in Victoria and look at the innovative and expansive BusBiz operation based in Swan Hill also in Victoria.

In Sydney we have a close look at the new B-Line double decker fleet servicing the city’s Northern Beaches with a fleet of 38s and also look at The Aviary, an innovative re use of an old Leyland double decker now re purposed as a mobile café and bar and I take a drive in LDV’s terrific little nine seater G10 mini bus. All that and a whole lot more in this issue of Coach & Bus.
