New South Wales best private bus drivers have been honoured with awards by the NSW Bus and Coach Association (BCA).

"The BCA Bus and Coach Driver of the Year Awards were established to recognise three individuals for their outstanding contribution to the NSW Bus and Coach Industry on an annual basis," says Darryl Mellish, Executive Director of the BCA.

"The Awards are divided into three categories — the Metropolitan Bus Driver of the year, Regional and Rural Bus Driver of the year, and Coach Driver of the year.

"It is important to recognise the best drivers in our industry – those who exhibit a positive and cooperative attitude towards their passengers and always drive safely," he says.

Mellish says the search for the best drivers was a lengthy process.

"It has been a lengthy search to find our best bus drivers for 2007, and we thank all the passengers and bus operators who participated in the nomination process, and of course our sponsor Mobitec/Thoreb for making the Awards possible," he says.

The 2007 BCA Bus and Coach Driver of the Year Award Winners are:

  • Metropolitan Bus Driver of the Year goes to Rodney Bransby from Blue Mountains Bus Co.

  • Regional and Rural Bus Driver of the Year goes to David Gallagher from Alstonville Bus Lines.

  • Coach Driver of the Year goes to David Young from Beachwheels Coaches — Harbord.
