«The bus and coach industry undoubtedly is a sustainable industry. An industry that can play a more active role in climate change measures. Not enough people, especially outside our industry, are aware of this. Busworld fully supports the initiative of SBY that wants to make this more obvious. Therefore it wants to assist SBY in spreading the message via its global Busworld platforms. Because it’s all about bus, coach and people», comments Mieke Glorieux.
