Omnibus Services is one of the oldest Bus Manufactures in Australia, beginning in the regional Great Southern Western Australian town of Kojonup.
Born out of the requirement to supply buses into their own fleet, the Pryor Group led by Tom Pryor in 1977 began manufacturing School Buses. The beginnings of The Omnibus Services Trust known in WA as “TOST”, put their hand to manufacturing at a time nothing was available on the market which suited the needs of country WA.
From this idea to supply their own growing fleet, the buses being manufactured were proving their worth in the poor conditions the buses were expected to operate day in day out with some buses never seeing the bitumen in their service life. Other bus operators whom were in the same position with few choices when purchasing their new School Buses approached TOST to have buses built for them. This was the beginning of what was to become over 40 years of manufacturing which led to diversifying into both manufacturing and repairs under the name “Omnibus Services”. Omnibus Services offers a proven track record, from TOST buses which are still operating in some capacity 25 to 30 years later.
With the peace of mind when purchasing your new bus from Omnibus Services that you will be dealing with a third generation family operated company who has always been here and will be well into the future.
The additional peace of mind given when purchasing an Omnibus Services Bus, is you are dealing directly with the company who manufactured your vehicle, the parts used to manufacture your bus are sourced locally and are readily available locally. This being more relevant now than ever, given the array of different models being imported by third parties with little control over parts and manufacturing. Cheaper in the short term not the long run.
Think of Omnibus Services when sourcing a New Bus and support Australian Made.
