Buscor (Pty) Ltd is a leading passenger bus company operating in the Lowveld region of Mpumalanga Province, South Africa with the head office in Nelspruit.
Buscor shares the vision of the Department of Transport namely to have a world class transport system for Mpumalanga Province, planned with the community, industry and labour which is integrated, reliable, affordable and safe.
Matsebula’s Bus Service was originally started in the late 1960’s by Messrs Samuel, Michael and their father, Mpopoli Matsebula. They were later joined by their younger brother, Joseph Matsebula. Matsebula’s Bus Service operated services between Pienaar, Daantjie and Lekazi to Nelspruit, as well as services in the Nkomazi area.
Sticks Nyalunga Bus Service was operated by the Nyalunga brothers, namely Solomon, Ben and Paul Nyalunga. The Nyalunga brothers operated services from Kabokweni and Pienaar area to White River.
It is in this company where Fred Kinnear and Abel Erasmus acquired a 50% stake. The two companies, Matsebula Bus Service and Stick Nyalunga amalgamated in 1980 to form what is today known as BUSCOR (Pty) Ltd under the leadership of Fred George Kinnear.
