RAIWAQA Buses Limited has added two new buses to its fleet.

The buses, which were made in China, were launched at a special function at the Novotel Convention Centre in Lami on Saturday night.

While launching the buses, Land Transport Authority chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva congratulated the company for its commitment towards public transport.

"Everybody knows that this is an investment. Each time we see a new bus on the road we feel proud," he said.

"It brings a sense of gratification to the operators for reinvesting into the industry, bringing quality service back to the travelling public."

Mr Tuinaceva said the company had imported new buses from Indonesia at the beginning of this year and the inclusion of the two new Golden Dragon buses would be a boost to the company.

He said with Euro three standard engines, the buses had a better fuel economy and would project less harmful fumes to the environment.

"This depicts the company's social responsibility to the community, to our people and our country.

"Having factory-made out of one of China's top manufacturers and rated fourth in the world, these Golden Dragon buses are built with high quality features and safety compliance.

"With automatic fire extinguishers and a mechanically sound Euro three engine, it will absolutely keep the travelling public safe from all odds.

"Members of the public will enjoy their ride with comfort , with safety and will not be discontented throughout the journey," said Mr Tuinaceva.
