Cranbourne Transit is a bus operator in Melbourne, Australia. It operates 16 routes under contract to Public Transport Victoria. It is a subsidiary of the Pulitano Group.

History[edit]

In August 1953, Phillips Bus Service purchased Woods Bus Services.[1][2] On 1 February 2003, Phillips Bus Service was purchased by the Pulitano Group and renamed Cranbourne Transit.[3]

Fleet[edit]

As at March 2022, the fleet consisted of 66 buses and coaches.[4] Cranbourne Transit's fleet livery was white with a black stripe until it was replaced with a yellow front livery in 2010. The orange and white Public Transport Victoria livery was adopted in 2016.
