Mybusparts.com.au is a brand new concept to the bus, coach and motor home industry.

Launched by, Lionel O’Neill and his wife Jennie it has been started with the operator in mind.

Lionel has been in the industry for 33 years, starting as an apprentice mechanic with Greyhound Coaches when he was just 15.

Lionel is currently the maintenance manager at Brisbane Bus Lines.

"I have worked here for 12 years, and prior to that I worked at Greyhound for 21 years," he tells Bus+Coach.

"I did my apprenticeship with Greyhound then I went to the engine and rebuilding section.

"Then I was supervising and workshop manager there, until I came to Brisbane Bus Lines."

With this kind of experience behind him he knows what it is like to try and source parts in the industry.

"I am in the industry and I know what’s going on, and I can utilise my knowledge of this industry," he says.

Over the years Lionel tells Bus+Coach he has found that the companies he has worked for, as well as many other companies that he has come into contact with accumulate second hand or near new parts.

He says these are the parts that other people in the industry may need.
