Seamless Transition in Albany
17 July, 2017
Seamless transition delivered by Swan Transit
Local TransAlbany school services resumed successfully today under the expert supervision of experienced operator Swan Transit, who now runs the local service.
Swan Transit expanded its Regional Bus operations into the Great Southern region after being awarded the contract to operate Albany Regional Town Bus Services, announced in May.
Already operating over 30 per cent of public bus contracts in Western Australia and moving over 60M people in Australia annually, Transit Systems CEO Clint Feuerherdt said they were confident of delivering a seamless transition.
"The back to school TransAlbany service went well and was uneventful, which in this business is good.
“All buses departed on time, connections were made and students got to their respective schools,” he said.
The company operates 17 buses from the newly constructed depot at Centennial Park.
“We have successfully transitioned more public bus contracts than any other provider in Australia, and we are looking forward to working with the community and alongside the Western Australia Public Transport Authority (PTA),” he said.
“We have a proud history of improving outcomes for the communities we service, and look forward to bringing our global experience as part of the Transport for London and Transport for NSW networks, to the Albany region.
“Working with employees and the community, we can apply successful transport philosophies and practices to the local market conditions, creating an optimal service for passengers and the government,” he said.
Transit Systems is an Australian owned family company that has built a reputation for a positive work culture and its ability to collaborate effectively with Government to deliver improved services for passengers.
