IN further news  about Transit Systems, the company has  launched a new look for SITA buslines, , the Melbourne based bus fleet it acquired in April 2019.

Nearly 170 buses and 250 employees are now officially branded part of the Transit Systems portfolio, which covers 19 major route services, as well as school, rail replacement and charter work in Victoria.

Transit Systems has successfully transitioned more public transport contracts than any other provider in Australia, and is renowned for innovation with leading on-demand services, including turn up and go services, and zero-emission transport outcomes already in operation.

Clint Feuerherdt, CEO SeaLink Travel Group, which wholly owns the Transit Systems subsidiary, said the group are pleased to see the Transit Systems network presence expand into Victoria.

“We have been successfully running the operations in Victoria for over 18 months now, and the time was right to consolidate the branding into the Transit Systems network.

“It is very much business as usual on the ground, but it demonstrates our commitment to the Victorian transport network as global operator with local knowledge,” he said.

Transit Systems has a fleet of electric buses running as part of a trial with Transport for New South Wales, as well as being one of the most experienced hydrogen fleet operators, experience gained in the globally renowned Transport for London network.

“We are driven by the concept that the more comfortable, convenient, sustainable and reliable we make public transport, the more we can increase patronage, reduce road congestion and decrease emissions – improve performance measurements and outcomes for our clients and the community.

“We have an exceptionally experienced team on board, covering sustainability and innovation to network planning and continuious improvement, with a proud history of result-driven collaboration in all of our contract regions.

“We look forward to seeing the Transit Systems fleet moving around Victoria, and we’re excited by the possibilities in the state,” he said.
