Hornibrook Bus Lines is an Australian operator of bus services in the Redcliffe Peninsula and surrounding Upper Bayside area of Brisbane. It operates 16 services under contract to the Queensland Government under the Translink banner.


In August 1935 Hornibrook Highway Bus Service commenced operating a service from Redcliffe to Sandgate station.[2]

In 1975 Hornibrook Bus Lines was purchased by Geoff Mountjoy.[3] By the late 1980s it had purchased Redcliffe-Brisbane Bus Service and Sandgate-Lutwyche Bus Service.[2]

In 1998 South Western Suburban Transit was purchased.[4]
