Our drivers are our most important part of the team!

We attract a high standard of professional drivers and have comprehensive in-house training programs and offer ongoing support to our staff to ensure the ability to provide you with a high level of industry service without going overboard and compromising safety. You won’t find any ‘Coach Captain’s’ working directly for us at eziBus Charters! If any of our driver’s present to work wearing a short sleeve shirt with a woolen vest over the top and neatly ironed shorts with knee high socks and black polished shoes (and the occasion and/ or our booking customer does not require/ request it) – we will send them home! Neat casual, dressed for the occasion (yet still maintaining professional service), is how we express to our drivers we would like them to represent themselves & our our team. We encourage our drivers to enjoy their day as much as you! What we do for you is not just a job – It’s our lifestyle too! That doesn’t mean 100% we wont ever have a driver present to work wearing knee high socks at some stage (but we can only hope this is during football final season and the socks will be of their team colours). It’s also a rare occasion – but it may just be if your service is going to the cricket, our driver will be wearing all whites & a baggy green! But, heaven forbid we provide you a service to the beach and our driver presents to work wearing only budgie smugglers/ or a bikini – surely that would be a safety issue for all man kind! And we would have to provide them with some clothes or send them home?!!
Why the sudden change in 2020? During the period of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Victoria, we have taken the time to reflect on what matters to us most – You; Our customers and passengers! Like many other SME business, we were forced into lock down and restricted from operating our services to the public. During this time we have also had some of family members express their desire to pull out of the business structure offering Bus Hire & Charter services and move on to other things. Regrettably, of course we are sad and disappointed to see them go, however…. this gave us the opportunity to switch our to focus to from Borrow a Bus model into new way of doing things – an ‘ezier’ way for you! During this time we have re-branded, restructured, and moved our main administration operations to the Geelong region, to ensure a prosperous and vibrant future in 2021 and beyond! Launching Jan 2021 we will be ‘back on the road’ – bigger and better than before! We have also been able seize the opportunity to form new local partnerships with other ventures like The Bellarine & Coastal Touring Co and we are pleased to an announce together we will be able to offer more products and services to the Greater Geelong, Bellarine Peninsula, & Surf Coast regions in Victoria whilst also maintaining our always valued customer base in Melbourne! Ensuring you always have an ‘ezi’ way of travelling – regardless of wherever you want or need to go!
