EIGHT bus drivers who cover routes between Fremantle, Kwinana, Rockingham and Mandurah were presented with 10-Year Safe Driving Awards on November 3 after driving around 50,000km every year without incident or accident.

Veolia Transport managing director Terry Scott presented Gary Payne (Warnbro), Berin Karaselimovic (Spearwood), Garry Gesche (Mandurah), Thomas Mears (Madora Bay), Stephen Hickman (Mandurah), Geoff Elliss (Success), Peter Turner (Parkwood) and Kevin Sutton (Kelmscott) with awards of excellence for safely transporting local people on Southern Coast Transit buses on the Transperth network.

“Bus driving is a very important profession with operators facing road congestion, relentless roadworks and traffic conditions and Veolia operators take their roles very seriously, knowing they are the daily link to connect people with work, school and the community,” Mr Scott said.

“This is the first time we are presenting an award to recognise our drivers and create awareness among the wider community of the fantastic job they do safely each and every day,” he said.

To be eligible for the award, drivers must not have had an accident, any traffic infringements or been involved in any unsafe incidents over a decade of employment.
