Latrobe Valley Bus Lines (LVBL) founded in 1948 and is celebrating over 70 years of providing professional and reliable bus transport across the Latrobe Valley and Gippsland.
LVBL is a family-owned company. Our priorities of safety and access are reflected in the professionalism of our employees, and the quality of fleet. Our team of Bus Drivers, Chaperones, Mechanical Technicians, Body Technicians, Apprentices and Administrators work with the Department of Transport to provide ongoing development of safe, reliable public transport across the region.
In an Australian first, with the support of Public Transport Victoria (PTV) LVBL introduced the first of eight Volvo Euro 6 hybrid Route Service buses during 2018 as part of our commitment to reducing the environmental footprint. Our ongoing investment in hybrid technology is in keeping with the company’s commitment to operating a socially and environmentally responsible business. As well as reducing noise and improving passenger comfort, hybrid buses produce fewer emissions and use up to 30 per cent less fuel than conventional diesel buses.
LVBL is the only bus company in Australia and New Zealand to have achieved B Corp Certification (www.bcorporation.com.au) for displaying verified social and environmental responsibility to the community. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
