Driver Shortages

We need to explore every possible avenue to attract, recruit and bring Drivers back to our Industry. National Seniors Australia are lobbying for changes withing the pension structure to allow Pensioners to work, to boost their retirement income and to help alleviate the labour shortages that we are experiencing. I ask that you support National Seniors Australia and sign their “Let Pensioners Work petition”, thank you.

The Queensland Bus Industry Council (QBIC) is the peak representative Industry body for the Bus and Coach Industry in Queensland, and as such is the "voice" of private Bus and Coach Operators in Queensland.

New Bus Breakdown Guide

Breakdowns are one of the most common safety risks in the bus industry. While breakdowns can occur in all motor vehicles, the hazards associated with bus breakdowns, where the vehicle is usually carrying public passengers and often schoolchildren, can be significant. A new Bus Breakdown Guide has been developed to help manage roadside hazards so that everyone stays safe. The Guide was developed under the Australian Government’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative (HVSI) program which funds initiatives that will deliver tangible improvements in road user, road and heavy vehicle safety.

Bus Rollaway Prevention: On average there is one heavy vehicle rollaway per day in Australia, 60% of fleets have experienced a rollaway, with 18% of these rollaway’s resulting in a fatality. Unfortunately, Buslink NT was one of these fleets that experienced a rollaway which resulted in a fatality. ComfortDelGro Australia (CDC) are working hard to turn a negative into a positive, developing a video to educate drivers and to help prevent rollaway’s in the future. The video also highlights common circumstances in which a rollaway may occur and provides effective measures to mitigate any such event. CDC invites all bus industry operators to download the video for internal driver training and awareness, to share the video with their employees to reinforce best practices for prevention.
