NSBC ACES 100TH YUTONG FOR ITS SYDNEY FLEET
SEATBELTS AND SAFETY were strong themes at a 100th Yutong bus celebration at North Sydney Bus Charters yesterday, during a stylish event at its Artarmon headquarters.
In an evocatively emotional presentation from NSBC CEO Scott Riley – a professional tennis coach and former pro tennis player – he exuded pride in declaring his company’s focus on customer safety, with its fleet of Yutong buses and coaches all factory-fitted with seatbelts.
NSBC is part of the NSBC Group, a highly successful local Sydney business owned by Riley, and it’s said to be one of Australia’s largest Australian- owned bus and charter coach companies. It now boasts a fleet of more than 100 charter vehicles, ranging from mini- coaches to midi coaches, and standard buses through to large luxury coaches – but its flagship vehicles are Yutong buses.
NSBC services a number of schools on Sydney’s North Shore and across Greater Sydney with student passenger transportation key - hence safety and reliability is paramount. These services supplement those provided by Transport for NSW, the company states, and it also provides charter services for corporates, clubs and sporting bodies.
Yutong, said to be the world’s biggest single bus manufacturer, delivered more than 70,000 vehicles to more than 120 countries in 2017, it’s reported. Every year around the world, Yutong buses run 43,000,000,000 kilometres and carry 34,000,000,000 passengers, it’s claimed.
In Australia, Yutong delivered more than 120 buses in 2017, with the company proud to deliver its 100th consecutive Yutong bus to NSBC, according to company spokespeople.
To mark the occasion, senior executives from Yutong – including Hu Huaiban, director of international business - along with official representatives of the Chinese government and local politicians gathered to commemorate the milestone event.
