The School is on the move!
And no one knows better than us — How to overcome the challenges of getting staff and students from A to B. Whether it’s a camp, an excursion or a sports day… There’s always someone heading off somewhere — it’s a hallmark of a successful school…AND an essential part of the educational experience!
Yet, transporting staff and students safely to and from their various destinations is one of the biggest challenges schools face. For this vital job, you need a RELIABLE transport provider — someone who understands the unique demands of school transport and knows how to meet them. At Mount Gravatt Coach and Travel, we’ve been ensuring that staff and students reach their destinations —. In fact, you’ve probably seen our buses around the school grounds. If you’ve been wondering why so many educators trust us with their school outings, I have some answers…
Safety is always top priority and, with Mount Gravatt Coach and Travel, you’re confident that your staff and students are in good hands. Every one of our drivers holds a Driver’s Authorisation from QLD Transport and a MR or HR Driver's License. They have been trained in the Code of Conduct for Students Travelling in Buses and Certificate III in Transport Operations - which means they’re trained in:
- On board safety and emergency procedures,
- General health and safety,
- Fatigue management,
- Mapping and navigating routes.
You might think that this would be the least you could expect… And you’d be right! BUT… Not all bus companies offer the same levels of cleanliness.
That’s because not all bus companies allocate a specific driver to each bus. Our drivers are not just using any vehicle from the yard — they each take care of a particular bus for the duration of their employment. They take ownership of their vehicles. As a result, they take a great deal of pride in the cleanliness and presentation of their buses.
We have a thoroughly modern fleet of reliable buses. Each vehicle is subjected to our rigorous maintenance schedule and must pass 6-monthly mechanical and safety inspections.
Our loyal team of experienced and reliable drivers are always willing to go the extra mile to assist passengers. We carefully select our drivers for their extensive safe driving experience AND pleasant, caring and helpful attitude — so you’re assured an enjoyable journey.
FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT CHARTER OFFICERS
We’re in the business of putting people on buses — NOT putting them through from one operator to another.
