Bus driver, and the assistant she amazingly went over and above her duties, I had missed my bus a previous day and my ticket was about to expire, I had no extra money to pay for another one, I was crying having got cut out from work and I just wanted to get home, she made me coffee, sat next to me for a minute telling me it's going to be okay, she kept checking if I was okay... Never thought I would receive do much kindness in a bus on the worst day of my life... Thank you guys, your services 👌❤️

All you need to know about Greyhound

Greyhound Australia as we know it today is the result of several pioneering travel brands collaborating to form the nation’s leading coach company. With more than a century of experience, the foundations of which built upon the likes of Pioneer, Greyhound, and McCafferty’s, we officially became known as Greyhound Australia in 2004.

The AA Withers Bus Company began in Melbourne in 1905, later undergoing name changes including Pioneer Tours, Ansett Pioneer, Pioneer, and Greyhound Pioneer Australia. Greyhound started in 1928 in Toowoomba by AR Penfold, a local man who provided transport to Brisbane in his Willys-Overland Whippet car as a result of a rail strike. The original car (which is still in mint condition) sported a greyhound radiator cap — the inspiration for what is now the most-recognised symbol for coach travel around the world.

A merger between Bus Australia and Australian Coachlines in 1993 saw the purchase of both Greyhound and Pioneer to become Greyhound Pioneer Australia. McCafferty’s Coaches, another Toowoomba-based company that began running in 1940, joined the family in 2000. We are proud to be one of the oldest coach companies in the world, with a safety record second to none, and look forward to seeing where the next hundred years takes us.

As the largest terrestrial transport network in Australia, only Greyhound truly explores every part of its vast beauty, with more than a hundred years of stories and travel experience.

Experience authentic Australia connected by authentic Australians. From our humble beginnings in Toowoomba, we now delight in travelling to over 180 stops around the nation with services in every mainland state and territory. Take in the rugged landscapes of city, coast and country as you relax in your reclining seat onboard our modern, air-conditioned, environmentally-friendly Greyhounds and let us do the driving.

From selecting your seat online, enjoying the free onboard WiFi, to stepping off at your destination, you’ll feel the difference that over a hundred years of experience makes.

Track your journey in real time, keep your devices topped up with USB chargers, and redeem free travel with the Greyhound Rewards program. Plan the ultimate escape with our flexible travel passes, packages, and experiences available right around the country.

Feel welcomed, feel cared for, feel excited for what’s next. Throughout every Greyhound journey, feel the heart of Australia.
