Popes, Timboon operates a complete modern fleet of buses and vehicles. Since 2000, we have standardised our chassis and engines to the high performance and low emission technology offered by the Volvo B7. Our body manufactures are required to supply a product that optimises both form and function. Standard features on current vehicles include Automated Cabin climate control; CD and MP3 Connectivity; 3 Point Harness Safety Belts for all passengers; and DVD players are becoming a standard features of school buses. Our maintenance program has been highlighted at a state level as a module to emulate. Moreover, we meticulously keep each vehicles under a strict routine of scheduled maintenance programming, and constantly review and update our processes.
- Group Tours and Excursions
A Key point-of-difference with our Group Tours and Excursions is that we have specialised local guides with an unparallelled breadth of knowledge and experience. This make every Popes Timboon journey informative, relevant and, of course, lots of fun.
- Seniors and Probus
Over the year our group touring department has evolved from simple daytrips to complex tours. No tour is ever the same and each tour is tailored to the client's specified requirements. What works for one, does not always work for the other. Seniors and Probus are an ageing demographic that have specific requirements. Each calendar year, week long tours and overnight tours are arranged custom to request.
- School Charter
We have developed strong relationships with all of the local schools that we service. Each respective school employs our service for a wide range of external activities. Our simple booking procedure and our driver's willingness to assist with supervision make it a simple, hassle-free procedure for teaching staff.
- Hire Drive
We have a broad range of vehicles that are available for hire drive. Again we have created a system that allows simple booking and collection procedures for our customers. This has helped in the ongoing development of our client list. Our range of vehicles includes 12,21 and 24 seat vehicles.
We collect and recycle 100% of our Grey Water & all rainwater that falls on our building is stored, eliminating mains supply.
Carbon Offsetting & Revegetation
We have made a conscious effort to revegetate our land to foster and preserve the natural habitat. Over many years we have revegetated significant proportions of our land to offset our carbon emissions and continue to reduce our carbon footprint. To aid our old growth forested areas, we have installed perimeter plantations of natural flora to reduce the prevailing wind damage. With carefull planning we created wildlife corridors to link forested areas, providing our native species a route with limited consequence.
Low emission Vehicles
Technology has advanced and so too has our commitment to keep informed and implement these changes. We now operate primarily from the Volvo B7 range of chassis and engines. Volvo is the world leaders in the development of low emission technology. Introducing an additive to the combustive process within the engine now serves to reduce our emissions from diesel engines. This has allowed our carbon footprint to be reduced significantly.
