At State Transit we love connecting with the community.
And one of our favourite community events is our annual Christmas Bus Competition. For the last 12 years, our depot staff decorate a number of buses in tinsel and ornaments to spread some festive cheer to our customers in the weeks leading to Christmas.
In 2011, we developed a partnership with the Sydney Children's Hospital at Randwick and one of their patients has the honour of judging the competition. They choose the best decorated bus and the driver from that depot is awarded money to donate to the charity of their choice. State Transit then matches that donation.
This year our special judge was four-year-old Bentley. With CEO Steffen Faurby, Bently picked the Kingsgrove bus as the winner.
We also take part in Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, The World's Greatest Shave and Movember and the Ice Bucket Challenge which help to raise money for worthy causes.
