MARCH IS­SUE 355

ABC (Australia) - - YEAR IN REVIEW -

FIT FOR A KING

Hav­ing notched up half a cen­tury in op­er­a­tion, Crown Coaches’ in­nings has been built on foun­da­tions of fam­ily, main­tain­ing good re­la­tion­ships, and in­no­va­tive ser­vices. ABC at­tended the 50th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion of this Vic­to­rian op­er­a­tor and finds that, even after half a cen­tury, its core val­ues have not changed. Past and present em­ploy­ees, in­dus­try part­ners and sup­pli­ers gath­ered to mark the oc­ca­sion with a black tie din­ner on a balmy night in Vic­to­ria’s Yarra Val­ley.

UNI TEN­DER

Kan­ga­roo Bus Lines won a ten­der to pro­vide ser­vices to the Univer­sity of the Sun­shine Coast. Kan­ga­roo coaches will pro­vide dis­abil­ity ac­cess on each ex­press shut­tle ser­vice to sup­port a di­verse stu­dent pop­u­la­tion, en­sur­ing all staff and stu­dents with dis­abil­i­ties are able to fully par­tic­i­pate in the Univer­sity com­mu­nity. The More­ton Bay cam­pus is due for com­ple­tion in 2020. The de­vel­op­ment of the new cam­pus will sup­port a full-ser­vice univer­sity, equal to that of Sippy Downs, and will wel­come 10,000plus stu­dents within the first 10 years of open­ing. The new univer­sity site is lo­cated ap­prox­i­mately 30km from Bris­bane’s CBD and 60km to the univer­sity’s Sippy Downs cam­pus.
