East West Bus Company was a privately owned bus operator in Melbourne, Australia. As a Melbourne bus company, it operated three bus routes under contract to the Government of Victoria.


East West Bus Company was formed in August 1980 as a joint venture between Dysons Group and Reservoir Bus Company operating route 560 Broadmeadows station to Greensborough.[2][3] Route 560 ceased in April 2010 being replaced by SmartBus route 902.

In February 2014 the Dyson Group became the sole owner,[4] and bus services ran in Dysons branding.[5] As of March 2019, all routes are shown in the Public Transport Victoria website as being operated by Dysons.[6][7][8]


As of May 2013 East West Bus Service operated a fleet of 17 buses.[1]
