CDC Melbourne has launched its first Double Decker Bus in Victoria.
The Melbourne-built bus is the first of its kind in Australia and seats up to 88 people plus standing room for additional 28 people. It will provide the highest seating capacity on the network and will service Melbourne's fastest growing Western region of Wyndham.
The launch of the Double Decker Bus will coincide with the opening of the new Regional Rail Link (RRL) on 13 June 2015, set to transform Victoria’s public transport industry.
In the spirit of cooperation, the debut of the latest Euro 5 Volgren Double Decker bus comes at an exciting time for CDC Victoria, Volgren and Public Transport Victoria (PTV), coinciding with the 21st June network changes to the Wyndham area.
Nicholas Yap, General Manager of CDC Victoria says: ”This Double Decker bus will result in and enhance the customer experience through the roll out of one of the biggest changes to the bus network in Melbourne’s West.”
