Brisbane Bus Lines was formed in the mid-1950s when Bill Mitchell commenced operating the Tamborine bus route between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. At this time he also began a charter service under the name Charter Coaches. In 1965 the business was renamed Brisbane Bus Lines and began to operate school and urban passenger services. School routes in the Pine Rivers Shire were acquired and the charter activities sold.
Brisbane Bus Lines previously operated services from Westfield Strathpine to Roma Street in central Brisbane. Services were also operated from Ferny Grove station to Brookside Shopping Centre via Mitchelton and Ferny Hills.
A coach service was also operated between Brisbane and Murgon. It previously operated to Biloela and Bundaberg. In August 2014, the four times weekly second service was withdrawn and the remaining daily service curtailed to Caboolture station with passengers required to transfer to a Queensland Rail train service into Brisbane. This ceased on 29 November 2014.
As at December 2014, the fleet consisted of 85 buses and coaches.
