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.
