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.
