Dysons announces acquisition of Moonee Valley route services

Dyson Group has confirmed the acquisition of various route services from Moonee Valley Bus Lines

Victorian operator Dyson Group has confirmed it has acquired the route services division from Moonee Valley Bus Lines.

The transaction includes Moonee Valley’s Routes 503 and 506, as well as two school services and 11 vehicles.

The family-owned Moonee Valley Bus Lines was founded by the Higginsons nearly 60 years ago, with Dysons saying it’s honoured to take over the reins of these services and keep them Victorian owned.

The acquisition is effective from the first service today and marks a significant milestone in both of the companies’ journeys.

“We wish Garry and the rest of the Higginsons the very best for the future and will no doubt cross paths again as the family continues to run Moonee Valley Coaches,” Dysons says on a LinkedIn post.

Dyson Group CEO Andrew Jakab says: “It’s a true privilege to be given the opportunity to continue the work of a respected family business. Thank you Garry and the Moonee Valley Coaches team.”
