History

In 2000/01, the State Transit Authority purchased four SuperCats. Initially eight were ordered, but the final four were cancelled.[1] All were built by Australian Defence Industries at Garden Island.

They primarily operate on Eastern Suburbs services and have on occasion been used on the Manly run.[2] The upper deck is closed at night time.
