Buses in Sydney’s south west receive a “freshen up”

Buses in Sydney's south west will now be cleaner, fresher and ready for passengers

Over 230 buses in Sydney’s south west have received a “freshen up” as part of Transit Systems’ plan to put cleaner, tidier buses on the roads.

Since taking over operations of the Sydney Bus Contract in October last year, servicing routes from Sydney’s Inner West to Camden, Transit Systems NSW managing director Daniela Fontana says the south west fleet had all received some much needed TLC.

“From air conditioning, to external paintwork, we have deployed a systematic approach to enhance the bus fleet in the South West,” she says.

“We now have an extensive repair workshop to facilitate an efficient and comprehensive range of mechanical and body repair services.”

Alongside the investment into the latest equipment and technology, Fontana says they had also bolstered the team to meet the heavy vehicle industry safety and quality standards.

“We now have an experienced team of qualified repair professionals to ensure our on-road fleet is setting a standard for comfort, cleanliness and reliability,” Fontana says.

“It means customers can enjoy a more comfortable ride, but also by investing and improving the bus quality, we’re enhancing the community appeal.”

A new bus wash has also been installed at Smeaton Grange, able to wash a bus every five minutes with the “latest water saving technology.”

“We take great pride in the fleets we operate, ensuring we are accountable on our maintenance and repair schedule commitments.”

“For the nearly 400 employees who joined our team at the Smeaton Grange depot, we have also refurbished the facility, and replaced furniture to bring the depot up to our operational standards and ensure the comfort of our team.

“We deliver more than 50,000,000 customer journeys each year, and now there are cleaner, tidier buses on the road for the community.”
