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.

Introducing the Mobileye technology to encourage safer driving and an investment towards safer roads

17357 CDCNSW mobileye tile facebook

Leading bus operator ComfortDelGro Corporation Australia (CDC) is proud to be the largest bus company in Australia to adopt Mobileye’s aftermarket solution. The vision-based collision avoidance system helps drivers to keep an “extra eye” on the road by alerting them to potential accidents and cutting reaction times.

Mobileye consists of a compact monocular high definition camera mounted on the windshield, which constantly monitors the road in front of the vehicle. This information is then displayed on a small dashboard device. In addition to visual alerts, the unit sounds an audio warning to assist the driver in preventing or mitigating a collision. The alerts monitor four main areas: safe following distance; forward collision alert; lane departure without signalling; and pedestrian and cyclist collision warning.

Mobileye technology helps drivers improve their driving habits and maximise concentration. Alerting them to various hazards before they occur encourages better driving habits, and with ongoing use, changes behaviour to produce a safer, lower-risk driving environment. Safer driving and a greater safety awareness help to protect the lives and safety of drivers and passengers as well as other road users, including pedestrian and cyclists.

The implementation of Mobileye technology will take place simultaneously in Victoria and NSW.
