About WCBC

Our history

Since day one, here at West Coast Bus Charters, we’ve been dedicated to providing top-quality bus hire services all across WA. Our commitment to safety, dependability, and customer satisfaction has made us a trusted name in transportation. Over the years, we’ve continued to steadily grow, and have been able to keep expanding our fleet and enhancing our services to meet the needs of all of our customers.


We first acquired WCBC in 2020, building on our background in party buses and our regular contracted work with WCBC from 2016 to 2019. Our passion for buses started early, from riding TransPerth in childhood, and carried us to where we are today. Twelve years ago, we had the opportunity to buy a bus and ran it as a passion until 2015, where we fully transitioned from the building industry into the bus charter industry.


Our journey included driving buses for mines and starting with just one school run and one bus. Today, we operate 80+ buses, service 300+ schools, and manage 40+ regular school runs daily. Since 2020, we have also acquired three other bus companies, further expanding our capabilities to serve even more customers’ needs.


We take pride in our modern fleet of well-maintained vehicles, equipped with the latest safety features to ensure a secure and comfortable journey. Our professional and friendly drivers are trained to deliver exceptional service, meaning that we know that every trip for our customers is enjoyable. At West Coast Bus Charters, we strive to exceed expectations and build lasting relationships with all our customers, because we love what we do.


Looking ahead, we plan to continue expanding, seizing opportunities, and ensuring all operations are meticulously managed to maintain our high standards for everyone who rides a West Coast Bus.

I just wanted to extend my thanks and appreciation for the excellent service provided by both drivers who transported Mater Dei College staff and students to and from the Perth Observatory last evening. Both Travis and Dave were excellent. They drove our large group very safely and intelligently dealing with difficult conditions of heavy traffic, rain, darkness, steep slopes. They were both very prompt, on time and assisted our large group of 65 with the extra cargo including a wheel chair. The quality of the bus interior was as I’d hoped, very comfortable, spacious, modern and with seat belts.

Thank you so much for working with us over the past week for another fantastic UWA Open Day. We hosted over 15,000 students and families over the weekend and with so many moving parts, it’s suppliers like you that make it that much easier. Thank you for all your time and patience over this busy period; we really appreciate it!

I just wanted to reach out with a quick message of gratitude for one of your drivers, Travis. We had a choir excursion from Aubin Grove Primary to Hammond Park Primary this morning and Travis was our driver. He was exceptional and made our trip such a happy, cruisey ride for the kids and I. He cranked the aircon so we got into a cool bus and was really friendly to all the kids. His communication was spot on too!

I wanted to let you know I had some feedback from our High-Performance team regarding the bus runs WCBC did for the South African Cheetahs, there was really great feedback from all staff and players so thank you to your and your team!

Amy Naughton, Western Force

Please could you extend our sincere thanks to our FABULOUS bus driver on Tuesday.  He was so pleasant and welcoming and all the staff commented!  His music playlist was also so age appropriate and really added to the excitement of the day!
