ABC (Australia) - - NEWS -

CUS­TOM BUS GROUP – the new en­tity of the tra­di­tional name­sake Cus­tom (Coaches), has de­liv­ered its first city buses to western Syd­ney op­er­a­tor Bus­about.

The two new CB80 low-floor city buses were de­liv­ered 10-11 Septem­ber, re­spec­tively, ac­cord­ing to a Cus­tom

Bus spokesper­son.

Bus­about has not tra­di­tion­ally pur­chased the Cus­tom prod­uct; how­ever, af­ter tak­ing de­liv­ery of its two new CB80 low-floors the com­pany con­firms it in­tends to pur­chase more of the model from Cus­tom in fu­ture.

In­sid­ers re­veal the de­liv­ery came about as a show of sup­port; Bus­about was the first cus­tomer to place an or­der for two ve­hi­cles on the MAN RC2, 19.320 Euro 5 chas­sis with the newly man­aged Cus­tom Bus Group, for the Bus­about op­er­a­tion at Smeaton Grange, Syd­ney.

Own­ers Tony and Joe Cal­abro say they were ab­so­lutely de­lighted to see the buses fin­ished prior to the agreed date

and built to the high­est qual­ity lev­els they ex­pected.

“The over-all build qual­ity is quite good. We found a few prob­lems on our ini­tial in­spec­tion, but these were fixed and sorted within a few hours on the same day. Af­ter sales and ser­vice was very im­pres­sive, to say the least,” they con­firmed.
