Christmas Bus 2
Christmas Bus 2

 

As the year 2017 is coming to a close it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Christmas at CDC NSW is around the corner when our famous Christmas Buses hit the road.

As an annual festive initiative, buses that run from Dural are decorated in particular Christmas themes to help raise money for the Children’s Westmead Hospital. Our Dural Depot Manager leads the initiative every year and his team have yet again successfully transformed these buses to transport us to the North Pole! In previous years, this initiative has been a huge success and without a doubt will be a great success again this year.

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network Chief Executive, Dr Michael Brydon said: “Some of our patients spend the festive season in hospital and unfortunately do not get the opportunity to head out to see the Christmas lights with their families. 

This time of year is all about giving and Lights for Kids is the perfect way to be involved and help sick kids live their healthiest lives.”

“Our drivers have worked hard on making these Christmas Buses the best ever and they get a lot of satisfaction out of not only helping to raise money for a worthy cause but also providing some Christmas cheer for our customers,” said a Hillsbus spokesperson. “Once again we hope our customers will get into the festive spirit and be generous in their support.”

The Christmas buses are out on the road till the 6th January 2018 so keep your eye out and hop on in. As passengers jingle all the way on the Christmas Buses they are encouraged to donate by placing money in the buckets provided in each bus or to go to https://www.lightsforkids.org.au/hillsbus-christmas-buses.

Hillsbus wishes all customers a safe and a Merry Christmas.

Bus Safety Week 6-12 November 2017

NSW Bus Safety Week will be held from 6–12 November 2017 to highlight the importance of bus-related safety issues for all road users.
Bus Safety Week is part of the ‘Be Bus Aware’ campaign which aims to reinforce the road rules relating to buses to the community and promote safer on-road interactions between pedestrians, motorists, bicycle riders and buses.

Each year, Bus Safety Week helps raise awareness for all road users on how to stay safe on and around buses, helping to reduce injuries and fatalities.

Buses cant stop quickly Pedestrians 650x163

Pedestrians
Pedestrians made up the largest group of bus fatalities over the 2012 to 2016 period. Bus Safety Week promotes safety for pedestrians, who should:

  • Plan ahead and don't rush for the bus
  • Follow the rules and cross with care
  • Avoid being distracted by mobile devices
  • Stand back from the kerb when waiting for a bus.

Buses cant stop quickly Drivers 650x163

Drivers
We know that because of their sheer size and mass, buses cause severe outcomes for other road users in crashes. Buses can't stop quickly and drivers should:

  • Give way to buses
  • Not merge too closely in front of buses
  • Slow down to 40 km/h when bus lights are flashing.

Our driver Xiaomei from our Northmead Depot received a glowing compliment that we just had to share. The customer wrote “The T64 service from Parramatta to Norwest is always punctual. The lady driver doesn’t seem rushed to board customers and makes every customer feel comfortable. I would like to thank her for her excellent service”.

Thank you for your great customer service and making our customers feel comfortable when travelling on your bus. Keep up the great work which helps us continue to serve our communities every day.

“We are so grateful for the support of Hillsbus and the dedication of drivers for creating such amazing Christmas displays in support of the Hospital. The effort the community has gone to and the funds raised through this appeal really have helped to brighten the lives of sick kids,” Gilly Paxton, Director of Community Relations and Marketing at the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network said.
