Veolia Transport NSW (Veolia Transport) recently acquired Crowthers Buslink operating in the Sutherland Shire of NSW.

Veolia Transport takes over the route services currently operated by Crowthers BusLink, effective January 1, 2009.

Morris Caputi, Managing Director of Veolia Transport NSW says the acquisition of this local bus business is a great result for Veolia Transport.

"It reinforces our commitment to serving the people of New South Wales," Caputi says.

"What’s so great about this business is its reputation and dedication to the Sutherland Shire community that it has served for over 60 years.

"We plan to build upon the excellent foundations that Mr Paul Crowther and Mr Barry Crowther set for this business," Caputi says.

Paul Crowther told ABC in an interview just over a year ago he believed a healthy bus and coach industry should have a mix of small and large companies, family and corporate, public and private.

However much has changed in just over 12 months.

"When we considered the future of the local bus service the logical conclusion was that we had achieved all that was possible at our level and we felt the future leant itself towards a larger corporate approach," he now says.

"Veolia has an excellent reputation and we know they will do a great job."

Crowthers Buslink operates in the southern suburbs of Sydney providing thelocal bus route service between Cronulla – Kurnell – Caringbah and Miranda, transporting local residents, visitors and school students.

Veolia Transport currently operates an extensive bus network centred on Sydney's southern, south western and western suburbs.

It operates across a 643 kilometre network with 53 routes, special school services and a range of charter buses.
