Robert Collins started Bankstown Coaches with TV 376 Scania K93CRB purchased ex Challenge Coachlines Pty Ltd in July 2003. The Challenge livery of white with a green stripe and platypus logo was adopted as the livery for all subsequent purchases by Bankstown.

At one stage Bankstown Coaches had around 12 Optus charter shifts subcontracted from the STA. It was at this time that the majority of the ex STA Mercedes-Benz O305s were purchased.

Bankstown Coaches has had an association with Comealong Tours since 2007, when MO 5261 Austral DC122 was purchased from the operator. From that year OSU 063 Denning Landseer entered into a subcontracting arrangement whereby the Landseer operated for Comealong under Bankstown accreditation and in Bankstown livery, later with signage for Comealong Coaches. This arrangement ended in December 2013, when Comealong Coaches ceased and the Landseer was sold to Bankstown Coaches.

A-Paradise Coach Tours, Annangrove was purchased in June 2009 with MO 6637, 5713 MO & TV 3429.

An overflow yard was established in Railway St, Yennora in 2010. Later overflow yards included the former Select/Dolphin yard in Wentworth St, Greenacre by January 2012 and then off Wallgrove Rd, Eastern Creek.

Robert Collins sold Bankstown Coaches and associated trading names to North Sydney Bus Charter 4/5/16 with 40 registered and 10 unregistered vehicles.
