Go West Tours has taken delivery of the first 30 buses ordered to supply buses for BHP’s Pilbara operations over the next seven years.
Twenty BCI buses have already arrived and a number of Volvo buses arrived today, all featuring custom safety features and modifications to suit remote conditions. All up Go West will increase its fleet from 300 to 350 buses to supply to BHP mine sites Yandi, Area C, Jimblebar, Eastern Ridge and Whaleback.
The new contract will employ an additional 50 people and expand Go West’s depots in Newman, Tom Price and Karratha.
