Fleet and maintenance excellence acknowledged by industry

Scott Campbell from Transdev Queensland

Redlands based public transport provider, Transdev, has been acknowledged at the 2020 Queensland Bus Industry Council Awards, with Fleet and Facilities Manager Scott Campbell receiving the 2020 Executive Director’s Choice Awards at a ceremony in Brisbane in late-November.

The QBIC Awards are the primary awards for the Queensland bus and coach industry.

Transdev Australasia CEO Luke Agati said the award acknowledged Scott’s significant contributions to the bus and public transport sector, with his career at the company spanning 25 years.

“Commencing at our Capalaba Depot as an apprentice, Scott has risen through our company to now lead our maintenance, fleet and facilities team within Transdev Queensland’s bus business,” Mr Agati said.

“With an unwavering ethos of safety, Scott and his team have delivered an exceptional record of continued high performance over a number of years.

“The team have introduced mid-life vehicle refurbishments and additional measures which have reduced the number of mechanical faults, and since 2018 we’ve seen a 32% reduction in breakdowns to buses in our Queensland fleet.”

Through Scott’s leadership, Transdev has recruited several school-based and junior apprentices from throughout Brisbane’s bayside suburbs and the Redlands.

Mr Campbell, a life-long resident of Redlands, said he was honoured to receive the Award.

“When I started my apprenticeship all of those years ago, I wouldn’t have imagined that it could have led to a such a long and rewarding career in an exciting and ever changing industry,” Mr Campbell said.

“Companywide, Transdev is doing a lot of work to deliver more sustainable, smarter and environmentally friendly fleet with a new electric bus joining our fleet in 2021.

“When I first started my career as a diesel mechanic there’s no way that I thought I’d ever have the opportunity to be a leader in a team that is designing new solar, electric and hydrogen powered fleet.”

QBIC Executive Director David Tape said it is an honour to acknowledge people within our Industry each year for their achievements and contributions. “Scott’s leadership, application and dedication to his role stands him in the highest regard with his industry colleagues,” Mr Tape said.
