Dear Tintern Grammar families,
I am writing to advise that effective 1 January 2017 we will be changing our bus transport company from Crown Coaches to Ventura Bus Lines after an extensive tender process.
The transition to Ventura will see very little change to our everyday bus schedules. Normal routines will be maintained with dedicated drivers to each bus route. The safety and care of your child remains paramount to both Tintern Grammar and Ventura Bus Lines.
Ventura was Founded in 1924 and are a third generation privately owned Melbourne based company. They are Fully Accredited and compliant with the Bus Safety Act (2009) VIC and all buses carry seatbelts. The company has a large fleet of over 850 vehicles, all drivers complete an intensive induction and training program prior to commencement. Their buses are GPS equipped and Ventura is committed to providing a transport service to our school that is customer focussed, safe, reliable and friendly.
We are looking forward to our new partnership with Ventura Bus Lines in 2017. Should you have any questions, queries or would like to secure a place for your child on one of our bus routes please contact our Transport Assistant, Carole Nye by email on CNye@tintern.vic.edu.au
