- To provide opportunities for South Australian communities and businesses to be directly involved in the Games.

Logistics and Requirements
The basic issue concerning transport logistics was the safe and accurate service delivery of approximately fifteen separate groups that had similar itineraries.
The CoachHire Solution
CoachHire found the best solution was to reuse vehicles for different groups, this would enable the best possible pricing as there did not have to be a dedicated vehicle for each individual group.
Thus cutting the cost of the operator, and with the additional benefits of a single point of contact for all groups, plus a comprehensive management of the whole event from a single service provider.
Using CoachHire as the transport services supplier expedited the exact needs of Pacific School Games, and helped to drastically reduce costs.
