The Platinum business class service between Sydney and Canberra from Greyhound is certainly a hit. Travellers have clearly voted in favour of this service, with their seats, and that has forced Greyhound to add one more coach to this popular service.

Kevin Lyons, the General Manager Express of Greyhound Australia was thrilled to announce that following the success of the initial trials, they are proud to add one more coach to their service.

The Platinum business class service from Greyhound offers free unlimited Wi-Fi access, power points, USB connections, reclining seats and loads of leg room. At an attractive fare of $36, travellers can avoid the hassles of long check-in queues at the airports, especially for short flights and can enjoy constant free wireless connectivity to stay in touch with work even when they are on the move. Additionally, as the service being offered is from one city centre to the other, it enables faster connections to the business areas and whereever else the travellers want to go after they get off.

Mr. Lyons added that now Greyhound has a Platinum coach leaving Sydney and Canberra in the morning and in the evening, apart from the Express services, providing its customers with more options to choose from.

Acknowledged as one of Telstra’s Clever Australians, the Greyhound service is increasingly becoming popular, thanks to its excellent business class services, convenient mobile booking options and the In Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS). In terms of revenue, the Platinum business class service has already seen a 30 percent rise. Additionally, the implementation of IVMS has seen a reduction of cost to the tune of $2 million a year.
