Is­land bus ser­vice grows

Western Suburbs Weekly - - BUSINESS - By DENISE S. CAHILL

ADAMS Coaches had its ninth bus trans­ported to Rot­tnest Is­land last month.

The Malaga-based busi­ness took over tours and trans­port on the Is­land in Novem­ber, tak­ing on 22 ex­ist­ing driv­ers and adding an­other 30.

Owner Adam Barnard said the new ser­vice would boost trans­port on the is­land.

“The trav­el­ling pub­lic will have 100 per cent wheel­chair ac­cess and air­con­di­tion­ing, and we’re dou­bling the ca­pac­ity in the peak pe­riod,” Mr Barnard said. “We’re head­ing into peak de­mand now.

“We’re very ex­cited to have this op­por­tu­nity and think it will bring sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits to Rot­tnest Is­land as a desti­na­tion.”

Mr Barnard started Adams Coaches in 2005 and ac­quired Aus­tralian Pin­na­cle Tours in 2012.

“It al­lows us to mar­ket Rot­tnest Is­land to the world,” Mr Barnard said.

Adams re­cently in­tro­duced the Grand Is­land Tour that in­cor­po­rates in­dige­nous his­tory, with tours of Oliver Hill Tun­nel, as well as a train ride and pic­nic lunch.
