Mine sites in Australia are some of the toughest workplaces in the world. In most cases, they’re many kilometres from the nearest town and in the nation’s north, are often operating in extreme weather conditions. This makes transporting staff to and from site challenging, especially in areas where roads are unsealed or at best rough. This is when you need reliable light transport vehicles which are covered by the support of a local company with national outreach.

Rentco in remote Australia
When you have staff working in difficult, or extreme weather conditions, you have a duty of care to make sure they’re travelling safely when they set off or return from a shift. Our self-drive 12 seater mini bus is the perfect solution for getting your crew safely to where they need to be, on or off site.
Construction Industry Shuttle Bus
Getting staff to remote work site can be a challenge, but work sites in a busy metro area with limited parking available also pose logistical problems. Transporting workers to site from a central collection point delivers many benefits:
- 12 staff, one vehicle, means less fuel consumption. It’s cost effective and better for the environment
- Central mustering point ensures staff are accounted for and arrive on-time
- You know that your workers are on-site when they need to be
- OSH – you know who’s onsite and can contact them if there’s an emergency
- If someone is absent you can reschedule work or pull in temporary staff
- Transport time can be used to brief employees on site, safety or work issues.
Have a group of people to move? Hire a people mover! Airport pickup’s, hotel or conference transfers and corporate events are less complicated if your group can enjoy the reliability and convenience of a shuttle bus.
