Tullamarine Bus Lines is a bus operator in Melbourne, Australia. As a Melbourne bus company, it operates eight bus routes under contract to the Government of Victoria. Tullamarine Bus Lines was purchased by CDC Melbourne in May 2018.[1]. It has been operating as a subsidiary to CDC Victoria since then.

History[edit]

Tullamarine Bus Lines was formed in May 1970 when the Spyrou and Sikavitsas families that owned Kastoria Bus Lines decided to go their separate ways. The Spyrou family was handed full control of Kastoria Bus Lines with routes 475 and 476, and the Sikavitsas family took routes 477 and 479 to form Tullamarine Bus Lines.[2][3]

Fleet[edit]

As at April 2018, the fleet consisted of 36 Mercedes-Benz buses.[4] The fleet livery is cream with burgundy stripes.
