Forty brand new generation CB80 Custom buses hit the road in Adelaide.
“The 40 new CB80 buses, many with a new red colour scheme were unveiled today and will be rolled out over the next month,” SA Transport Minister Patrick Conlon announced at the bus launch in July. “These buses are the next step in the State Government’s unprecedented investment of more than $2 billion in our public transport system, “This significant investment has already delivered 60 extra new buses over the past 3 financial years, which has enabled us to offer hundreds of extra services.”
The CB80 bus body was designed and engineered by Custom and built at the production facility Royal Park, Adelaide, on a Scania chassis. The new CB80 buses are the result of Custom’s 57 years of manufacturing and operational experience in Australia and are designed for maximum seating capacity and passenger comfort. They also feature a new driver’s area that has been 3D modelled and engineered to provide arguably the best driver environment available on the market today.
