On Thank You Cleaner Day, Busways has paid tribute to its 130 dedicated behind-the-scenes cleaners for ensuring that daily commutes remain safe, clean and comfortable.
The group of enthusiastic and hard-working cleaners are onsite ensuring a fleet of more than 1,350 buses across Greater Sydney, the Central Coast, regional NSW and Adelaide are ready to go for the next shift.
Busways Chief Operating Officer Chris Wolf says Busways recognises the critical work of Busways’ cleaning professionals and values their contributions in making the world a cleaner and more comfortable place.
“Thank Your Cleaner Day is a special occasion for us at Busways to recognise the tireless dedication of our cleaning team all year round,” Wolf says.
“Paying tribute to our amazing cleaning team who play a pivotal role in maintaining the quality and hygiene in the Busways’ fleet every day is the least we can do to express our sincere gratitude for their consistent efforts.
“Our hard-working cleaners have seen us through the height of the COVID pandemic and continue to go above and beyond in keeping our buses clean and sanitary for all our passengers.
“Servicing a bus with a sweep, scrub, wash, wipe and cleanse goes a long way and ultimately makes the journey more comfortable for our customers.”
Busways says it continues to improve workplace health and safety for its cleaning maintenance team through the implementation of eco-friendly cleaning solutions late last year.
“Our team now uses 100 per cent non-toxic, water-based cleaning products in their daily cleaning of bus interiors and depots as well as in bus washes and also for hand hygiene,” Wolf says.
“These products are characterised by their biodegradability qualities and are GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) certified from the Ecolabel program.”
Busways says its holistic health approach helps guarantee the wellbeing and safety of its workers while delivering highly effective cleaning solutions.
The operator has thanked all those responsible for keeping its public transport and workplaces safe, clean and comfortable.
