Hybrid buses are eligible for both the bus service operators grant and the low carbon emission bus incentive depending on what fuel is used. The government wishes to increase the uptake of ultra-low and zero emission buses, and will look at possible changes to incentivise this during stage 2 of the bus service operators grant reform process.
