Cardinia Transit is a bus and coach operator in Melbourne, Australia. As a Melbourne bus company, it operates 15 bus routes under contract to the Government of Victoria.

History[edit]

Cardinia Transit was formed in June 1996 when Grenda Corporation purchased Berwick Bus Lines and amalgamated them with Grenda's Bus Services' Pakenham depot.[1] It was included in the sale of Grenda Corporation to Ventura Bus Lines in November 2011.[2][3]

Fleet[edit]

As at April 2014 the fleet consisted of 77 buses and coaches.[4] Initially Cardinia Transit adopted the cream with red stripes of Grenda's Bus Services. It has since adopted the standard white with red and yellow flashes of Grenda Corporation.
