About Us

Sapphire Coast Buslines

Sapphire Coast Buslines, a family business owned by Jamie and Anton Klemm, has a rich history rooted in their upbringing in Jindabyne and extensive travels across Australia and abroad. In 2005, they acquired Deane's Buslines, South Coast from Jamie's parents, Dennis and Susan Deane, marking the beginning of their journey in the transportation industry.

Since then, Jamie and Anton have consistently expanded their business, culminating in the recent acquisition of Scarlett’s Bus Service in 2023. This strategic move not only reinforced their regional presence but also demonstrated a commitment to enhancing services and opportunities for their dedicated team of over 70 employees. With a focus on job creation and preservation, this acquisition positions Sapphire Coast Buslines to meet the evolving needs of the community.

With over two decades of service in the Bega Valley Region, Sapphire Coast Buslines is deeply ingrained in the local community. Jamie and Anton, who are parents to three children, actively engage in and support various community, business activities, organizations, events, and initiatives within the Bega Valley Shire.

Currently, Sapphire Coast Buslines plays a vital role in the region by transporting approximately 3100 school students to 21 different schools. Their services extend beyond school transportation, offering route services between Eden and Bega, Merimbula and Tura Beach and on-demand services within 3 geographic zones; Eden, Bega and Merimbula/ Pambula/ Tura Beach.

Jamie and Anton emphasize that their business will remain a family-owned venture in the region for the foreseeable future. Committed to continuous growth and expansion, they provide an increasing array of services including extensive charter and tour offerings, cruise ship shuttles and tours and private contract work for companies such as Snowy Hydro.  With a fleet of 54 buses including speacialised shuttle buses and charter buses and we specialize in large scale crowd logistics for buses at festivals and are adept in orchestrating seamless and efficient transportation solutions.

"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."
