Kastoria Bus Lines was formed when routes 475, 476, 477 and 479 were purchased from Barnes Bus Lines in 1964 by the Spyrou and Sikavitsas families. In January 1971 the company was split, with the Spyrou gaining full control of the business with routes 475 and 476, and the Sikavitsas family taking 477 and 479 to form Tullamarine Bus Lines.

In May 1973 route 501 was acquired. Devesons Bus & Coach Service was purchased in October 1979. Coaches are operated under the Australian Nationwide Tours brand.[1]

In August 2009 the business was sold by the Spyrou family to Dom Sita.[2]



As at September 2012 the fleet consisted of 41 buses and coaches.[5] The fleet livery is blue and white.
