Company History

Ballarat Coachlines is family owned and industry-accredited to provide you with the highest quality services in bus and coach chartering.

Serving you for more than 25 years

Ballarat Coachlines has been delivering bus hire and charter services since 1987 when David Wakeling founded the company.

With just two school buses and a dedication to service, safety and reliability, his modest fleet grew to include a mini bus and coach.

An introduction to bus operator Eric Kosloff in 1991 initiated a strong business partnership and a new era for the company.

A true family business

Every member of the Wakeling and Kosloff families have worked alongside them at one point and contributed to Ballarat Coachlines history and success.

Now Eric’s sons, Brendan and Matthew, carry on the management of Ballarat Coachlines and David’s values are continued in their passion and commitment to their passengers and the transport industry.

Ongoing customer commitment

David’s early successes have turned into sustained growth and the Ballarat Coachlines team is proud to be one of Australia’s best charter companies.

With a modern fleet of more than 30 vehicles we provide exceptional service to our passengers, some of who have been travelling with us for more than 20 years. We look forward to servicing your next bus charter too.
