Hillsbus update for customers
Hillsbus has urged its customers to consider alternative travel options with further disruption to peak services expected due to a higher than expected number of drivers calling in sick at their depot in North West Sydney.
“Hillsbus sincerely regrets the disruption and inconvenience caused to our customers. We are working to operate as many services as possible, however, there will be some cancellations and delays this afternoon on some routes,” a spokesperson said.
“Customers travelling from the CBD in particular should consider travelling earlier or using alternative transport options where possible.”
Station Link services through Macquarie Park are continuing uninterrupted.
Today’s disruption has been caused by 115 drivers calling in sick, which is almost six times higher than the average absentee rate for this time of year.
Hillsbus is in the middle of discussions with drivers about a new enterprise agreement and no action has been called by the Transport Workers’ Union.
The Transport Workers’ Union is supportive of the package being offered and it is believed most drivers support the offer as well.
