Our society is different to many other non-profit groups in that the club actually possesses a fleet of heritage buses which its voluntary members maintain and preserve for the benefit of future generations.
One of our biggest challenges with operating buses are the recurring costs involved - such as registration, insurance, fuel and necessary refurbishments and repairs.
Whether it's $5, $50 or $500 - the more money we raise, the more vehicle restoration work we can undertake - such as the recent refurbishments of Buses 80 and 827.
The Queensland Omnibus & Coach Society Inc. is on the Register of Cultural Organisations and all donations (over $2) are therefore tax deductible.

Restoration of 1969 BCC Leyland Panther #722
This vehicle we are focusing our efforts on this year is former Brisbane City Council 1969 Leyland Panther Bus 722 - the very last of the Athol Hedges batch of Panthers that were purchased by the Council as tram replacements between 1968 and 1970.
In April 2019, it will be 50 years since the Brisbane Tramways were closed - and it is our intention to have this vehicle restored back to its former glory to commemorate this important part of Brisbane's transport heritage. The vehicle is currently at Watt's Bus & Coach Works where work has already begun.
We are now accepting donations towards this project - any funds received will be graciously appreciated and are tax deductible.
