Nearly 50-million commuters have taken a trip on a Transit Systems bus since it started operating in Western Sydney in 2013.
Transit Systems NSW general manager Len Kidd personally handed out hundreds of muffins to Region 3 passengers, which includes Liverpool, Fairfield and Holroyd. There were 500 muffins loaded onto a special service double- decker ‘ Thank U Sydney’ bus to commemorate the achievement.
Transit Systems CEO Clint Feuerherdt says it’s been a pleasure to be able to transport so many people in the community and to reach this milestone.
“We are proud to reach the 50-million-passenger milestone and celebrate the moment with people who use our service every day,” he says. “We’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hopefully the muffin is a pleasant surprise on an otherwise ordinary day.
“Transit Systems has continually improved services in the contract region, delivering 65 brand-new buses, introducing double-decker buses on the T-80, and improving timetabling and connections.”
Under the management of Transit Systems, the T80 service between Parramatta and Liverpool has become Sydney’s first bus rapid transport route, operating a five-minute frequency service during peak periods. It also runs the state’s only large-scale fully air-conditioned and wheelchairaccessible fleet.
