The demands on public transport are rapidly rising and constantly evolving. Mindful of these industry dynamics and the tight commercials that define public transport for today and tomorrow, CDC is progressive and innovative in our solution design.
Every day across Australia, CDC links people, places and communities. We know one link can’t meet all needs. Links are personal. Links are individual to mode, to geography, to demographics. We put the passenger and their transport needs at the centre of our transport solutions.
We’re an industry frontrunner. CDC brings international and interstate smarts to solve local issues. We are passionate about providing transport choices that optimise safety, sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness.
Public transport is an essential part of tackling the pollution and congestion that impact so many of our cities and urban areas. We aim to future proof our transport networks by exploring innovations that enable us to move around more cleanly.
CDC experiments with emerging technologies to build new network capabilities that are valued, diverse and competitive. We put innovation in motion.
We are curious by nature and we always want to do better.
- How can we improve the reliability of our transport services?
- How can we improve the safety of our passengers, our drivers and other commuters?
- How can we improve the customer journey?
- How can we reduce our carbon footprint?
- How can we reduce operating budgets and exceed performance targets?
Safer Smoother Rides
Keeping our staff, passengers, fellow commuters and the broader community safe is CDC’s number one priority. We’re early adopters of transformational technologies that are proven to increase safety and reduce the likelihood of collisions.
Mobileye – Keeping Passengers Safer
CDC became the largest bus company in Australia to install Mobileye in its Victoria and New South Wales fleets in 2017.
Mobileye is a vision-based collision avoidance system that helps improve driver habits and concentration, keeping passengers safer. Mobileye sends drivers real-time alerts warning about safe distances, forward collision hazards, lane departures without signal, pedestrians and cyclists.
The implementation of Mobileye, coupled with other technology and the training of drivers, has helped to enhance the safety of drivers, passengers and other road users in the communities that we serve.
By helping to prevent serious accidents and with a focus on safer roads, the risk of passenger injury and the frequency of cancelled or disrupted journeys can be reduced. A win all round.

Telematics – Building Safer Driving Culture
Bus drivers are under constant pressure to meet on-time running targets amid the daily challenges of changing traffic conditions. The reality is that in pushing to meet timetable schedules, drivers can develop poor bus handling habits like speeding, hard braking, hard acceleration and hard cornering. These habits create broader safety issues for drivers, passengers and local community surrounds.
With a mobile workforce it’s hard to always know what’s happening in the field. To enhance the safety performance of our drivers, CDC installed telematics software in our buses across NSW. Telematics software monitors and records the bus handling habits of individual drivers. We assess and benchmark performance to support our drivers with timely, meaningful and targeted driver training to improve the safety and comfort of our rides.
