Hes owned the majority of Mana since 2007 the remainder is owned by Infratil which acquired it when it purchased New Zealand Bus off Stagecoach. There was a previous attempt by NZ Bus to buy all of Mana however the Commerce Commission put a stop to that. Howick and Eastern has been in his ownership since 2008.

Huh? What are you talking about? The bus in the link is just a "model/artists impression". It doesn't actually exist yet!
