Swan Transit awarded the Albany Regional Town Bus Service Contract

Swan Transit will expand its Regional Bus operations into the Great Southern region after being awarded the contract to operate Albany Regional Town Bus Services. 

Swan Transit’s expansion into the Great Southern region comes as a result of a proven track record of high quality bus operations, according to Transit Systems CEO Clint Feuerherdt.

“We have continually demonstrated a commitment to partnering with the West Australian Public Transport Authority (PTA) to improve regional public transport outcomes and we’re excited to expand our service offering as part of the network,” he said.  

Mr Feuerherdt added that the contract involves the operation of 17 buses.

“We are prepared for a seamless transition, with a newly built public transport depot located at Centennial Park, Albany and we look forward to working with the community and PTA to provide the region with convenient and reliable services,” 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.

“We look forward to working with the new team members and with the community to review any opportunities that will improve operational efficiencies, connections and timetabling,” he said.

Mr Feuerherdt added that Transit Systems had transitioned more public bus contracts than any other provider in Australia.

“We are confident of our ability to provide a smooth transition and will ensure that the community continues to receive a reliable and convenient service,” he said.

Swan Transit will commence operations in Albany on 1 July 2017 and is now taking applications for Casual Bus Driver positions.
