So, it appears that Adelaide is leading the way with solar powered public transport. I’ll never make jokes about it being sleepy hollow again.
The Tindo bus is the world’s first solar powered 45-seater, getting it’s charge from panels on the roof of the Adelaide bus depot. With a range of 200 kilometres, it also carries a small ‘fast-charge’ unit in case it’s running out of juice while taking the tourists to Glenelg.
Now that the South Australian’s have achieved carbon neutral public transport, when do we start seeing them on the road here in Melbourne?
