Who we are
Forest Coach Lines is proudly committed to serving Australian communities by connecting people and places. Founded in 1930, Forest Coach Lines has evolved into a major provider of essential bus services across a wide stretch of Sydney’s Northern suburbs, as well as the Mid North Coast and North West Slopes regions in New South Wales.
We operate a fleet of over 240 buses and coaches out of seven locations, providing not just urban and school bus transportation, but reliable and competitive charter services for schools, companies, charities, sporting clubs and other recreational groups. We strive to be an Employer of Choice, with over 250 employees.
In September 2018, Forest Coach Lines was acquired by ComfortDelGro Corporation Australia (CDC), which is in turn owned by ComfortDelGro Corporation Limited, a global transportation company listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange.
