Sapphire Coast Buslines is a family business owned by Jamie and Anton Klemm, who grew up in Jindabyne and spent many years travelling around Australia and overseas before settling on the Sapphire Coast.
The couple purchased the Pambula-based business ‘Deane’s Buslines South Coast’ in 2005 from Jamie’s parents Dennis and Susan Deane and since that time have embarked on several new affiliated businesses including a travel agency, soulQuesttravel, and a professional car detailing business called SparQle.
In January 2013 Jamie and Anton purchased Tathra Bus Service, Whymans Buslines and Merimbula Buslines bringing their bus and coach fleet to 40 and extending their bus service area to cover the whole Bega Valley Shire.
Jamie and Anton have three young children and are involved in and support a vast range of community and business activities, organisations, events and initiatives. They selected the name ‘Sapphire Coast Buslines’ to reiterate their firm commitment to the region.
“Our business will remain a family-owned business in this region for a long time to come. We are continually looking at ways to expand and grow and offer more services to the local community.” Jamie Klemm, announcing change of name to Sapphire Coast Buslines in December 2012
