About Us

JR Coachlines is a locally owned and operated company based out of Waiuku. The company is owned by locally born and bred James and Rose Collie who have a strong passion and a big heart for the community.

When James returned to the area after being overseas for a number of yers he wanted to start a local business that would make a difference in people’s lives across Franklin. James is no stranger to focusing on community needs as he previously served for a number of years on the local board. James is also in his 3rd term as vice-president of the Waiuku Cosmopolitan Club.

James and Rose realised that they could make a positive contribution to Franklin in the area of transport after the closure of two other bus companies. So JR Coachlines was born out of the clear need for a locally based bus company that could offer both luxury coach liners and school day trips, or even a shuttle to the airport.

If you have a school trip or camp, if you need to transport sports teams or social groups or need an Airport Shuttle we can help! JR Coachlines also specialise in local tours such as the Awhitu Peninsula, Lighthouse, Awhitu Wines and stopping at the Pollock Coop.
