Founded on 10th May, 1970 by Nicholas Sikavitsas, Tullamarine Bus Lines has continued to grow and to provide the best possible service to passengers in the North West of Melbourne.

Nicholas migrated to Australia in 1956 and entered the bus industry as a bus driver, later entering into a partnership known as Kastoria Bus Lines. In 1970 the partnership dissolved and Tullamarine Bus Lines was formed.

From humble beginnings of just 7 buses and six employees operating the 477,478 & 479 routes we now employ 60 people and operate 6 routes. Our offices are now located  at 9 Louis Street, Airport West.

The day to day operations have now been passed onto Nick’s sons.

Tullamarine Bus Lines prides itself on being a family owned and run business understanding that it’s the little things that count. Service & safety have always been its number one priority.

Contracted to the Victorian Government we now operate 5 Metropolitan bus routes and a demand responsive service in Gowanbrae together with school services. We currently operate with a fleet of Mercedes buses that have been our chosen vehicles since 1984 when we purchased 5 new Model 1316 buses.

The Sikavitsas family welcomes our passengers and hopes you have a safe and pleasant experience whilst using our services.
