Bus Speeds

August 18th, 2007 at 12:24am

Good morning Clinton,

Your question about how fast can a bus travel caught my attention and I thought I should answer it for you.

A number of your older buses in Sydney are ex-Canberra buses and slightly older than Canberra's current oldest buses. I'm not sure of the rated maximum speeds of Sydney buses, but I can tell you that Canberra's older buses supposedly have a maximum speed of 83km/h…some struggle to reach that and others will easily eclipse that, especially when going downhill.

Canberra's newer buses, which are somewhat similar to Sydney's newer buses, could easily reach some very fast speeds, however they are electronically limited to 85km/h.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart
