Latest News


QBIC is the peak representative Industry body for the Bus and Coach Industry in Queensland, and as such the “voice” of private Bus and Coach Operators in Queensland.

QBIC’s representation is achieved through a well balanced sector Committee structure consisting of the following Committees, School Services Committee, Commercial Contracts Committee and Long Distance, Tour and Charter Committee.

The general control and management of the Association is the responsibility of the Management Committee, which consists of a President, Vice President and Treasurer elected at a General Meeting of the Members and six other representatives drawn from the elected sector Committees.

QBIC was incorporated on the 27th of April 2000 following the amalgamation of the Bus & Coach Association (QLD) Inc and the Bus Operators Association (QLD) Inc.
