Serving Dunedin for 70 years
Established by ex-servicemen in 1947, the company serviced the greater Green Island community as predominantly an urban service operation, transport deregulation and Ministry of Education tendering in the 1980's saw the company expand into further school transport operations and the greater Dunedin urban market.
Ministry of Education school bus contracts, and commercial urban services are currently operated in the coastal Otago area.
Charter services have always been a mainstay of the business since its inception, with all manner of groups transported, ranging from local groups, through to national touring parties and sports teams

Purchased by the Sutherland family from local Green Island shareholders in 1976, we are proudly Dunedin owned and operated.
