Bus Qld confirms it will keep Roma service

BUS Queensland have confirmed that they will remain committed to serving South West Queensland.

With the recent decision of Greyhound Australia to cancel its service from Brisbane-Roma, the fleet operator wants to reassure Roma residents it will continue to operate in the region.

Bus Queensland chief operating officer, Robert Macey said its buses were still connecting residents to the rest of the state with daily services.

"We have a strong and loyal passenger base in Roma and are committed to continuing our services in the region,” Mr Macey said.

"We understand the importance of public transport and the essential service that it provides for many residents.

"We will continue to operate daily services to and from Roma, connecting residents to Brisbane, major regional centres and Outback Queensland.”

Mr Macey said the firm had a range of people who uses its service for a variety of reasons and understood this service was a necessity in regional areas.

"Our passengers range from people visiting friends and family, travelling to Brisbane for appointments, workers who commute, students travelling to and from boarding school and tourists using our coaches to explore our magnificent outback,” he said.

"Having access to regular bus services is vital for all of these groups.

"We look forward to welcoming residents of Roma on board very soon.”

Bus Queensland, which was established in 1972 by four brothers with just four buses, is one of the largest privately-owned bus companies in Australia.

It operates a modern fleet of 414 buses in Queensland and Victoria and employs more than 600 people.

Buses head out to Charleville as part of one of their Outback services.
