MARCH ISSUE 355
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.
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.
