Bus & Coach Driver Awards

BusNSW’s “Bus Driver of the Year” Awards were established in 2006 to recognise individuals for their outstanding contribution to the NSW Bus and Coach Industry.

As the interface between bus operators and their customers, the industry depends heavily on its drivers to provide the kind of customer service that the travelling public expect and rely upon.

Bus NSW is now taking nominations for the 2020/21 Bus & Coach Driver of the Year Awards. These awards recognise three individuals for their outstanding contribution to the NSW Bus and Coach Industry.

Awards for the Metropolitan/Outer-metropolitan Bus Driver of the year, Rural & Regional Bus Driver of the year, and Coach Driver of the year will be presented at the Australasia Bus & Coach Expo on Wednesday 29 September 2021 at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

  1. Exhibit a positive and cooperative attitude towards their job;
  2. Assist passengers and other staff members;
  3. Have a high standard of personal presentation;
  4. Always greet passengers in a polite and friendly manner;
