Metro Tasmania BusTech statement

Between 2017 and 2021, BusTech and its Tasmanian construction partner,
Elphinstone, delivered Metro 100 low emission, fully accessible buses.

BusTech was engaged to supply an additional 26 buses, however due to
problems relating to the fulfilment of the contract, Metro has decided to end
the agreement and seek alternative sources for its future bus fleet.
Eight buses of the 26 have been received .

Metro CEO Katie Cooper said: “Metro will now explore other bus supply
opportunities to ensure its fleet is available to continue to deliver public
transport services for the Tasmanian community.”
Ms Cooper said it was inappropriate to provide specific detail while the issue
was subject to legal discussions.
