Kelsian Group CEO Clint Feuerherdt said its highly experienced management team in London will oversee the operations, remaining focussed on delivering essential and sustainable journeys. “We are delighted to take the reins of both LibertyBus in Jersey and CT Plus in Guernsey. Kelsian’s legacy is supporting island communities and economies and we are excited to serve the Channel Islands and their tourists to provide safe and reliable services. “From a Group perspective, these acquisitions are on strategy and add to the Group’s growing contracted international bus fleet and global network of transport and tourism professionals at Kelsian Group,” he said.
Mr Feuerherdt said they are looking forward to exploring further opportunities for international growth for the Group, which includes SeaLink Marine & Tourism, Transit Systems and Tower Transit. “Island operations underpin Kelsian’s history of performance and success, and when we combine that with the global public transport knowledge from Transit Systems – it demonstrates the power of our capabilities in delivering world-class transport solutions,” he said.
Samuel Ribeiro, Managing Director of Tower Transit, said, “The Group are delighted to take over the reins of both LibertyBus in Jersey and CT Plus in Guernsey and thank HCT Group for their commitment to the Channel Islands over the years and their positive collaboration with the Government of Jersey and States of Guernsey. Our aim is to maintain a business-as-usual approach whilst drawing on the experience and capabilities of the Group in the future. We proudly serve several Island communities in Australia and look forward to extending this high-quality service to the people of Jersey and Guernsey.”
