Uzabus heritage comes from the amalgamation of seven-passenger transport companies combining over two centuries of quality community service in the Manawatu, Horowhenua, Bay of Plenty and Kapiti areas and 30 years touring the South Island.
Madge Coachlines has a history of over 100 years service to the Manawatu and Horowhenua regions operation School, Urban and Charter services.
Since 1920 the company has the reputation as “The regions carriers of distinction”.
From humble beginnings the company’s fleet included an extended Model T Ford and an Indian steam bus. Madge have progressed with the times to luxury Tour coaches to meet today’s high standards of passenger transport.
Bayline Coaches started as Tauranga’s first motorised passenger service in 1919 and today is one of the largest passenger transport operators in the Bay of Plenty.
The Company has had a succession of name changes over the years – trading as Tauranga Bus Service from 1946, Tauranga Mount Maunganui Bus Company in 1969 and Bayline Coaches since 1986.
As the latest addition to the Uzabus group of companies Bayline brings with it a wide range of quality vehicles and a skilled team to further compliment the services Uzabus currently offers.
Established in 1991, Palmerston North Coachline has a proud history of providing quality tour coach services.
The company originally specialised in charter services before expanding its offering to include school contracts. As the Palmerston North Coachlines fleet grew, so did its reputation for quality service and competitive quoting.
Prior to its renaming in 1995 to Transbay Coaches, the Whakatane bus company was the first major passenger transport enterprise in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
The company now provides school bus transport and charter services to a wide range of schools, community groups, private and corporate organisations.
Travelling some of the most beautiful coastline in New Zealand, it’s easy to see why scenic and mystery tours are popular Transbay Coach excursions.
Ranui Buses Opotiki joined the UZABUS Fleet in 2007 following 15 years of service to the local community operating school, charter and orchard transport services.
The company now utilises systems and vehicles from the UZABUS Fleet, offering improved service and safety to all its customers.
Kawerau Coaches joined the UZABUS Fleet in February 2014.
Having served the Kawerau community for almost 2 decades with private charters, school and special needs services they too now have access to a more dynamic range of vehicles and resources to ensure their clients get the best travel experience possible.
Unique Holiday Tours was born in 1982 transporting parents and school children on South Island adventures. The following 3 decades saw the tour popularity grow and the move from cabins and campground kitchens to the more luxurious spoils of hotels and restaurants.
After a long affiliation with the owners Uzabus purchased Unique Holiday Tours in 2008 and continues to create lifetime memories for hundreds of travellers every year.
