To provide these services Sapphire Coast Buslines has a range of buses it uses.
Are used for our away charters as well as local charters. They have individual seats with arm rests, two TV’s, air-conditioning and luggage capacity.

They have lower floors, wide doors, wide aisles and there are no steps in the front half of the bus. Other features include handrails, accessible stop buttons and highly-visible LED destination signs on the front of the bus.
Accessible buses have designated areas with folding seats that are designed to fit mobility aids such as wheelchairs and ride-on scooters. These areas are also used for prams and strollers. However, wheelchair users and persons with limited mobility always have priority.
Transport for NSW has determined that regular route buses in regional areas will not have seatbelts. This will benefit customers that have expressed concern regarding the loss of amenity associated with flip-down seats for customers with trolleys, mobility aids or prams, as well as back-rests for wheelchair customers on these buses.
Our low floor buses have between 41 and 49 seats and up to 33 standing capacity.
All our low floor buses have air conditioning and CCTV cameras for added passenger comfort and safety.
