The Bus Foundation aims to: acknowledge and recognise an operator’s involvement with their industry representative body and their contribution to the industry; raise awareness of significant bus industry social issues; create a lasting asset for the operator community; make it easy for operators to contribute and see the results of their donations and; provide an opportunity for the industry to plan for its own needs and aspirations. The overriding objective of the Foundation is to provide financial assistance to BusVic’s members and past members who may be in need of assistance due to a variety of reasons.

'BusCover' is simply a brand that represents your Association's endeavours to commend insurance products and services to its members.

As of 1 April 2013, ABCU became BAV's insurance partner and we encourage BAV members to talk to ABCU for all their insurance arrangements because ABCU are a sponsor of BAV.

ABCU is an underwriter and provides its products through appropriately licensed insurance intermediaries and ABCU is strongly affiliated with all bus and coach industry representative bodies in Australia. ABCU have been insuring plenty of BAV members for over thirty years. 

Because ABCU is an underwriter, BAV members can only access their product via a broker. If you have an existing broker, just ask them to quote on ABCU product.  If you do not have a broker, we suggest you contact the insurance broker listed below:
