Sydney Shuttle Bus Cruises down O’Riordan Street
On Monday the 30 th of May at approximately 3pm EST, the skies turn grey and the heaven opened up which lead to unbelievable down pours of torrential rain causing flash flooding and car accidents in many of Sydney’s suburbs. Some area’s recorded over 4 inches of rain in one afternoon.
With such flash flooding, many motorists were caught unaware and found themselves at the mercy of the rising waters with their cars stalled due to the electric components getting wet. Amongst some of those casualties was the VIP Higher Car Services 24 passenger rosa shuttle bus while servicing the South Sydney Corporate Park.
“With the airport shuttle bus left with no where to go”
While normal petrol driven motor cars were stalling in the rising flood waters, the traffic behind them were beginning to backup creating a traffic jam that also included the VIP shuttle bus. With the airport shuttle bus left with no where to go, the waters rose above the wheel level. While this normally isn’t a problem as the vehicle is powered by a diesel motor, it seems as though the low placed dual batteries were not so forgiving and caused the shuttle bus to stall along with the other vehicles and requiring the State Emergency Services to come to the rescue.
Apparently VIP Higher Car Services has been approached by P&O Cruise Ships regarding a possible business relationship for a new fleet of cruise ships to sail between Circular Quay and Sydney’s Southern Suburbs. VIP Higher Car Services stated they are still waiting for confirmation from the local council that they were not going to fix the drains so the potential new cruise passages will remain possible.
