Victoria’s Ventura Bus Lines will increase its fleet if city buses announcing an order totalling 22 Endeavour buses from local maker Custom Denning.
Ventura’s General Manager of Fleet, David Burgess visited Custom Denning’s manufacturing and production facilities in St Marys, Sydney earlier in the year looking to add to their fleet of city buses.
According to a Custom Denning statement, he was impressed with the extent of local engineering, the processes, and the end result.
With a rich history dating back to 1924 and with its ‘Celebrating 100 Years of Service’ centenary anniversary coming in 2024, Ventura has an extensive network of routes that spans Victoria.
Custom Denning said: “Proudly engineered and manufactured in Australia, the Endeavour buses will be 12.5 meters in length and will be built on a Scania chassis.
“The Endeavour buses are known for their reliability and passenger-centric features and are a testament to Australian manufacturing with the product being designed and engineered for a structural life of over 20 years.
“This combined order total of 22 Custom Denning Endeavour buses from Ventura Bus Lines, exemplifies their dedication to exceptional service and ongoing support for Australian manufacturing.”
The delivery of the Custom Denning Endeavour buses is expected to commence later this year.
