Two depots, two names. And marketing to the Newcastle charter market. Simples.

And it works very well for Port Stephens who do a large volume of charter in the Newcastle market.Local marketing does work when done well.

Could also be because PS Coaches has the OMBSC with TfNSW and Newcastle Coaches is purely a charter business.

I would not think so . The Port Stephens website http://www.pscoaches.com.au/Home covers all their coach tours while there is no Newcastle coaches equivalent.
