As far as I know, yes.

Also, the Royles own Forest.

Maianbar-Bundeena is owned by the Lleahy family.

I think you will find Surfside and Bustech are both owned by the Calabro family the Calabro`s brought Surfside for 3 million dollars from Greyhound and Bustech came into being to produce buses for Surfside that is what I thought anyway.

Apart from CDC, Veolia-Transdev, and bank owned Greyhound, how many other operators are NOT family owned?

From the Brisbane Courier Mail of 3 October 2011 following the Greyhound takeover of Oz Experience: "Mr Mentha and business partner Mark Korda invested in Greyhound - through their corporate recovery firm KordaMentha - in 2006 after seeing massive potential in the business. They own 85% of Greyhound with the balance held by Helen Chapman of the Cairns based tourism family." I don't know if this ownership structure has changed in the last 10 months.

Who owns the Buslines Group? I get a distinct feeling that they are no longer family owned.

Members of the Gilbert family are long gone. There was a management (Franks d'Apuzzo and Peter Simpson) buyout during the 1990s? But I suspect there have been more ownership changes since?

I wouldnt classify CDC as a Family owned company anymore since it was put into receivership a few years ago. If i am not miostaken Greyhound, last I heard, was a majority owned by ANZ and has a few othe shareholders. It wasnt fully owned by ANZ

If I am not mistaken, Greyhound when through 2 restructures as the ANZ wanted to take a bigger stake in the business limiting the share holders holding down and pushing the Maccafertys to 10 percent ownership. Not long after that the maccaffertys opted out.
