TRANSDEV STANDS TALL WITH NEW DOUBLE DECKERS

Today marks the start of a new era for Transdev in Sydney with the introduction of their new double decker fleet.

Two double deckers went into service on Monday 7 August on the M92 Route from Sutherland to Parramatta.

The eye-catching new vehicles have recently arrived from Queensland bus manufacturer Bustech’s factory.

Four more double deckers are due to join the Transdev fleet in coming months and will also be used initially on the M92 service.

The M92 service was specifically selected as a highly patronised route, especially during peaks that a vehicle with a higher capacity would best suit.

Managing Director, Nikki Allder said, “The introduction of the double deckers will provide increased capacity for our customers on busy routes. As Journey Makers, our drivers are excited about the new fleet and ensuring the best experience for our customers.”

Considerable preparatory work was done to ensure that the M92 route was clear of obstructions like low hanging branches, wires or signage before it could be cleared for service.

Minor changes were made to the stands at Bankstown Central, where the M90 and M92 swapped between stands 3 and 4, but otherwise the M92 is running as normal.

“While customers are encouraged to take a seat upstairs, they must also remain aware of their safety and ensure they ‘Get A Grip’ while moving about the vehicle, especially using the stairs,” said Nikki.
