Since 2008 Tairua Bus has transported over 250,000 passengers around the Coromandel, Waikato and greater Auckland areas for a diverse group of customers.


Steve Mosen founded the business with its first vehicle providing critical customer support for local hotel operators to famous landmarks including  Hotwater Beach, Hahei and Cathedral Cove. Later further buses were added to the now defunct Nakedbus and Manabus regional networks connecting tourists to Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton and beyond.

The business now fully concentrates on regional school bus services, charter for special interest groups, company outings, popular local music events, weddings and airport transfers.


A very important part of this company is the Team of drivers, made up of full and part-time,  all drivers reside locally and have extensive knowledge and history of the area.

We pride our drivers on being professional, mature, knowledgeable and more so happy to assist in anyway they can.

They are all fully qualified and up to date on every safety issue concerning the safety of our passengers.
