Sydney Airport says it is looking at replacing the six diesel buses that currently run from the two domestic terminals to a nearby car park with electric vehicles.

The airport said on Monday it had opened expressions of interest for an open tender to supply electric buses for the “busy shuttle route” that carried about 1.6 million staff and passengers in 2014 between Terminals two and three and the Blu Emu car park.

“We are always looking to improve the efficiency of our ground transport operations and to do so in a sustainable way,” Sydney Airport general manager for parking and ground transport Craig Norton said in a statement.

“Finding sustainable transport solutions is a priority for the airport, and advances in electric vehicle technology in recent years mean we can now look seriously at the feasibility of introducing electric buses.”

Sydney Airport said manufacturers from both Australia and overseas were invited to register, with notices of the tender published in the US and UK, as well as across Europe and Asia.

The deadline for applications is June 12.
