Promoting seatbelt safety on buses: Sapphire Coast Buslines takes the lead

Ensuring the safety of passengers is a top priority for Sapphire Coast Buslines, and one area where this commitment is particularly crucial is seatbelt safety. In line with recent recommendations from the NSW Bus Industry Taskforce, Sapphire Coast Buslines is stepping up its efforts to promote seatbelt usage on buses and ensure compliance with seatbelt laws.

The importance of seatbelts

While buses are generally considered safe due to their size and design, seatbelts can provide added protection in the event of a crash or sudden stop. Seatbelts help to prevent passengers from being thrown from their seats, which can reduce the risk of injury or death in accidents. Overall, seatbelts are an important safety feature that can contribute to saving lives on buses.

Promoting bus safety on the Sapphire Coast

Sapphire Coast Buslines fully supports the Bus Taskforce Safety Report with respect to the seatbelt recommendations and is committed to playing a proactive role in promoting seatbelt safety. The company recognises that seatbelts are a crucial safety feature that can significantly reduce the risk of injury in the event of a crash. As part of its efforts to promote seatbelt safety, Sapphire Coast Buslines is launching a comprehensive campaign aimed at both passengers and bus drivers. The core target audience includes passengers of buses and bus drivers, with secondary messaging directed towards parents, carers and educators of children who are passengers on buses. The campaign messaging is clear and straightforward, emphasising the importance of wearing seatbelts properly and highlighting their effectiveness in preventing injuries during accidents. Sapphire Coast Buslines aims to educate the community about the critical role seatbelts play in ensuring passenger safety.


To support the campaign, TFNSW  has developed a range of assets, including posters to be displayed in buses and bus stops.. These posters convey a simple yet powerful message about the importance of seatbelt usage on buses and serve as a visual reminder to passengers to buckle up for safety.

Staff training and awareness – an investment in safety

Sapphire Coast Buslines is also investing in staff training and awareness programs to ensure that bus drivers are equipped to enforce seatbelt regulations and provide passengers with information about seatbelt usage.
