They will also unveil the new fleet of 50 Zero Emission Buses (ZEBs) that will enter service in September.

Following the update, The Mayor, Commissioner and other spokespeople will be available for one-to-one interviews and members of the media will also have an opportunity to look around the inside of a new Bee Network bus to gather content.
