History[edit]

In the 1940s, the Newcastle to Nelson Bay service was purchased by the Fogg family. In 1957, the route was purchased by Sid Fogg and renamed Port Stephens Coaches. At this stage the fleet consisted of six buses.[4]

In 1972, Port Stephens Coaches commenced operating tours to the Hunter Valley vineyards. In 1986, an express service commenced between Nelson Bay and Sydney.[4][5]

In the 2000s, a second depot was established in Sandgate. Buses based here are signwritten for Newcastle Coaches.
