CDC Oakleigh introduction of Volvo Zone Management technology

In 2020, CDC Victoria became the first public transport provider in Australia to implement the use of automatic geofencing technology to deliver enhanced environmental performance, by reducing emissions and limiting engine noise in identified zones.

CDC Victoria used Volvo's Zone Management system to trial, then roll out, the technology in its hybrid fleet at Oakleigh depot. The fleet commenced operation on the streets of Melbourne, with e-zones identified using telemetric data. The system makes Victoria’s public transport network greener, more sustainable, and less disruptive.
