Interline Bus Services is an Australian bus company operating services in South West Sydney.

History

Interline Bus Services was formed when the Oliveri family purchased route 102 Campbelltown Hospital - Macquarie Fields from Herbert Harrison on 1 September 1961.

On 1 June 1989, it merged with Oliveri's Transport Service, Green Valley with both renamed Metro-link Bus Lines. In September 1993, it was again separated and rebranded Interline Bus Services.

In August 2002, Southern Cross Transit, Karana Downs, was purchased by the Oliveri family and is now the sister company of Interline.

Since 2005 Interline's services have been part of Sydney Bus Region 2. On 1 June 2014, Interline commenced operating all services in the region including those previously operated by Busabout.

Fleet

As at July 2014, the fleet consisted of 90 buses. In the 1980s the Ingleburn Bus Service fleet consisted of Bedford YMT3s and Leyland Super Vikings and Tigers, two of which were configured as coaches.

In the early 1990s ex ACTION Leyland Nationals, Transperth Leyland B21s and Urban Transit Authority Leyland Atlanteans were purchased. These were in turn replaced by ex ACTION Mercedes-Benz O305s and Renault PR100.2s. More recently new Volvos and Daewoos have been purchased.

Following the Oliveri family's purchase of Southern Cross Transit in August 2002, many Interline buses have been transferred for further service.

Ingleburn Bus Service had a light green and red livery that gave way to Metro-link's turquoise. Interline adopted a white and blue scheme.
