Guide for Coach/Bus Quality Standards in Tasmania

This guide has been developed by the Tasmanian Bus Association for operators to voluntary participate in a system that represents coach/bus industry standards instead of trying to adopt other quality systems that do not specifically represent the bus industry. The aim of developing the quality standards is to provide customers of association members a standard schedule of vehicles from which they may choose when looking to hire coaches or buses from LUXURY to STANDARD depending on the tour or charter requirements.

The following standards are the minimum requirements for each of four categories that have been established.
