Transdev is the new name for the passenger transport specialist, a brand recognised globally for more than 20 years and founded on excellence in operational performance and customer service.

Transdev Queensland Managing Director, Colin Jennings said, "Our name change signifies a strategic shift in shareholding arrangements, designed to consolidate and strengthen our business - for the long-haul. In essence, there is no change to our ongoing commitment to delivering a safe, quality service to the Redlands community, and our contract partners, TransLink."

The bus franchise has served the Redlands for more than 50 years. It has origins dating back to 1926, as a family owned business, the Black and W hite Bus Service, which first operated from Lota before eventually relocating to Capalaba in the early 1990s as Bayside Buslines.

From its humble beginnings, a series of amalgamations and rebrands have transformed Transdev Queensland into the passenger transport leader it is today, connecting more than 2.7million people annually in the Redlands, Brisbane and the Gold Coast hinterland.

"We provide more than 4000 urban and regional bus services every week, including 91TransLink and 11 Yatala school runs, and we offer coach charters as well," Mr Jennings said. "I am confident that under the Transdev banner, our local knowledge will be further fortified by international strength and expertise."

"We are part of a strong, unified Transdev brand which includes buses and ferries here in Queensland; buses, light rail and ferries in Sydney; buses in Melbourne,WA and Darwin; and trains in Auckland," he explained.
