egtmedia59Sydney travel industry notables and media turned out last night to the Four Points by Sheraton Sydney Hotel at Darling Harbour for the launch of a new Sydney airport-CBD luxury shuttle bus service – REDY2GO.

REDY2GO offers something rather different – its fleet of 10-seater Fiat Ducato long-wheel base buses is equipped with onboard Wi-Fi, TVs and driver-to-passenger communication systems.A REDY2GO bus

REDY2GO’s chief executive, Paul Highams, said the new service would fill what he described as a gap in the local airport-CBD transport market.

“There is really nothing between the limousines and various localised budget airport-shuttle bus services – so we have taken the opportunity to fill it,” Highams said.

“We feel the timing is exactly right to launch this kind of service and we are confident the take-up for REDY2GO will be very positive as the word gets out.”

A test by Global Travel Media of the new vehicles yesterday evening revealed them to be stylish and comfortable, each with a smart, uniformed driver. It would be an easy and pleasant way to zip between Sydney Airport and the city’s hotels.

REDY2GO has appointed high-profile travel industry figure Kevin Millard to head up the new transportation company’s business development.

Millard, who brought the house down at the launch last night with a quick stand-up comedy routine, needs no introduction to the Australian travel scene. He has held senior business development, marketing and sales management roles in the sector, including with Travel Agents Travel Service (TATS), TIAS and Interline Reservations Service.

Millard is also the name behind Kev’s Sports Tours, which specialises in handling travel arrangements for Australian competitors taking part in the quadrennial World Masters Games.

REDY2GO’s buses feature pre-fitted luggage facilities, which means they don’t have to tow luggage trailers. That speeds up passenger pick-ups and drop-offs.

The company’s uniformed drivers have been selected for local knowledge, enabling them to point out places of interest to passengers on the journey.

A website giving fare quotes and other information has been established too: https://redy2go.com.au/
