The founder of Otobus had started working for a private school as a bus driver the same year the school was opened in southwest Sydney for education in 1996. Within a few years, as the school gained recognition and rapidly grew, our founder Mr. Abdullah Er was recognised as a hard working, capable and trustworthy employee, and was approached by the school, where he was offered to take on the responsibility of the schools complete transportation requirements, where he began to purchase buses, employ drivers and diligently took full control of the division which the school no longer could handle, given the sensitivity of the task at hand; the responsibility of transporting school students, in a safe and timely manner, to and from their homes on a daily basis was enormous. A risk the school was not willing to take, as any oversights in the maintenance of vehicles, the training and development of bus drivers, and, the organising of daily routes of buses which were travelling all around NSW could have easily caused heavy and irreversible implications on the status and prestige of any school.
Mr. Er, with his entrepreneurial foresight and dedicated work ethic was able to create a company which to date has never sacrificed on quality or industry-set standards, and on the contrary has always exceeded all expectations and limitations, which has enabled him to gain recognition and growth in our competitive and highly regulated industry.
As the school grew from a small 20 pupil to a 3000+ pupil establishment, one bus in 1996 turned into 18 by the end of the 2015 calendar year. Operating vehicles on this scale meant that Otobus had the capacity to service the schools complete transportation needs, including: excursions, camps, sports carnivals, after hours social events, interstate travel requirements, and much more. This allowed for the school to save substantial amounts of money, as as an indication of loyalty, otobus serviced these transfers at prices which no other company could meet. Consequently, both the school and the parents of students were pleased with our ability in being able to provide quality services at budget prices.
In 2016, we have successfully expanded into the international market, where biannually, we service the transportation needs of 300+ passengers, from start to finish, of reputable clients from Asia.
Today, we are a completely accredited and qualified provider of transportation in NSW, and despite having contractual agreements with several other private schools and prestigious sporting clubs in Sydney to service their private door to door transportation needs, our extensive fleet of modern and diverse vehicles which we are contantly updating and renewing means that we also provide our services to customers who require any kind of transport, including: hires, airport transfers, charters, interstate travel, schools, private chauffeured vehicles, luxury and budget services, and any customised service our customers may need.
We are still currently a family owned company, where we share the vision of our founder: to provide comfortable, safe, friendly and reliable transportation services in Sydney, with the goal of being a one-stop-shop for all your hire and charter requirements, and having offices all around Australia, for your convenience and peace of mind.
We are open to all booking requests and contractual offers, and no job is too big, nor too small for Otobus.
