Sapphire Coast Buslines
Is a family business owned by Jamie and Anton Klemm. Before settling on the Sapphire Coast, the couple grew up in Jindabyne and spent many years travelling across Australia and abroad. In 2005, the couple purchased Deane's Buslines South Coast, which was owned by Jamie's parents, Dennis and Susan Deane.
In 2013, Jamie and Anton bought Tathra Bus Service, Whymans Buslines and Merimbula Buslines, bringing their total bus and coach fleet to 40 and expanding their bus services across the Bega Valley Shire. To express their firm commitment to the region, Jamie and Anton chose to change the name of the business to 'Sapphire Coast Buslines'.
The couple, who have three young children, are involved in and support a diverse range of community and business activities, organisations, events and initiatives within the Bega Valley Shire. Today, Sapphire Coast Buslines transports approximately 2500 school students to 14 different schools, as well as provides route services between Eden and Bega and on-demand services within the local area.
"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."
We, the Directors of Sapphire Coast Buslines, are committed to meeting and, where possible, exceeding customer expectations through continuous fleet upgrades and system improvements. We are dedicated to providing on-time service, technologically advanced buses and coaches and well-trained personnel. We aim to exceed our contractual obligations by implementing an integrated total quality management system that is audited both internally and externally on a regular basis.
Sapphire Coast Buslines' mission is to provide safe, reliable, accessible and comfortable passenger transport to the community and to be an innovative leader in the bus and coach transportation industry.
