The staff and board of the NHVR would like to acknowledge the significant contribution of Bus Industry Confederation Executive Director Michael Apps, following his recent passing.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said Michael was a leader and advocate for a safer and more productive bus industry.
“Right from the early days of the NHVR, Michael was knocking on our door with a strong agenda for reforms across the bus industry and public transport,” Mr Petroccitto said.
“Despite battling illness recently he continued to push for solutions for the bus industry right through the COVID disruption period.
“Michael was at helm of BIC for almost two decades and before that the ATA, and in that time he was a friend and sounding board for many of us.
“His laugh and wit will be missed when we next sit down with the industry.”
The NHVR sends its condolences to Michael’s wife Madonna and BIC members.
