History

Grenda's started out as a small bus service company after George Grenda (founder), sold his milk truck in 1945. [http://www.grendacorp.com.au/index.php?doc_id=1 A brief of Grenda's Corporation on the Main Page, Accessed Thursday 24/1/08] After selling his milk truck, he has purchased four small buses for transport purposes.

Bus Appearances

The current colours used by Grenda's are White, Red and Yellow. These colours are mainly seen on the modern low floor buses and some coaches.

The SmartBus colours used by Grenda's (as well as Eastrans, Invicta & Ventura) are Orange and Silver, and buses that wear this livery are primary used on Routes 900 & 901. Buses on Smartbus Routes 888 and 889 wear the standard Grenda's livery.

Many older buses & coaches used by Grenda's are still in the old Red and Off-White livery, while more recent repaints of older buses are simply plain white.
