Lowveld Bus Service From Petroria To Lephalale Contacts, Timetable, Owner & Booking

Lowveld Bus Service was founded in October 1983 by Louis Rossel and Garnet van der Walt. The dormant company name Laeveld Bus Diens was bought by Thaba Nchu Transport as well as 20 permits to operate a passenger service in the Ellisras area.

The first buses were bought from SA Transport in Kimberly and brought to Ellisras. A very small depot was established on a plot on the outskirts of town which consisted of two rondawels and no proper workshop. In 1989 a better equipped depot was built in Onverwacht, Ellisras to accommodate the growth and to sustain a reliable and safe service. In 1990 Lowveld Bus service was awarded a contract by the then Iscor mine to convey passengers to the Grootegeluk Coal Mine and back.

The demand for transport also grew over the years as the town started expanding. In 1998 the Department of Roads and Transport put out a kilometre based tender for transport in the area and it was awarded to Lowveld Bus Service. In 2001 one of the owners Garnet Van der Walt  was bought out and a new company Buthotis Trading (Pty)Ltd t/a Lowveld Bus Service.
