Our Fleet

Mt Gravatt Coach & Travel has a fleet of 42 vehicles. We offer clean, air-conditioned Coaches with comfortable seats and non belted buses  - and of course a friendly, professional, courteous driver!

On-board entertainment is available, and vehicles are fitted with communication equipment to ensure a seamless trip.

As well as providing extra-large storage space under the coach (which means you’ll have lots of leg-room inside the coach), we can provide your group with special trailers to accommodate awkwardly-shaped musical instruments, as well as luggage.

We have sports buses available—great for shuttle services between local pools, attractions, sporting venues and schools. For comfort and safety, some coaches offer reclining seats.

In accordance with Department of Education’s safety recommendations, we are able to provide buses with seatbelts for student travel on 80–100 kph roads.

Each vehicle is subjected to our rigorous maintenance schedule and must pass 6-monthly mechanical and safety inspections.

For your complete peace of mind, we’ve dotted all the ‘i’s and crossed all the ‘t’s.

OUR FLEET FAMILY

That’s why we have christened each bus and coach with its own name.

On top of it all, Oprah remains a down-to-earth and easy to talk to woman. And, truly, that's what has made her a success. Her dedicated Charity work especially to African orphanages and schools was why her name was chosen to represent a Classy Lady.

True to his fighting spirit, the Gold Coast police dog squad officer was more concerned about his crime-fighting partner, Biff. "Is my dog all right?" were his first words from his hospital bed, before telling police Assistant Commissioner Graham Rynders:"Boss, I'll be back at work as soon as I can." And he was, returning barely two months later after a number of surgeries.
