Keirs of Canberra is a second generation business that started in the late 1960s. The company Kayboa Pty Ltd was registered 13 May 1987 and may reflect the business passing down a generation in the family.

Keirs provided a number of school bus services under contract to the ACT government. A significant portion of the vast minibus fleet was employed on school bus services to Woden Special School. At least 4 contracts from South Canberra schools to Corin Road, Naas Road, Tharwa and Uriarra were also held.These were won on tender from Murrays in approximately 1989. The Kowen Forest to Canberra minibus school run was purchased from R Aylott, Narrabundah for the start of Term 1 1995.

Keirs lost their ACT government school contracts over two rounds of tendering:
1) Canberra schools - Tharwa & Canberra schools - Tidbinbilla/Uriarra lost to QCity Transit Pty Ltd (CDC Group) as of Term 3 21/7/14.
2) Canberra schools - Majura Road and ACT region special needs services lost to QCity Transit Pty Ltd (CDC Group) as of Term 1 2020.
