Trans North Bus & Coach was founded in 1983 with one bus and a school run from Forrest Beach to Ingham. In 1996, Trans North expanded significantly with the acquisitions of Forrest Bus Service, Ingham and Panorama Coaches, Innisfail. Further acquisitions saw a number of smaller operators & runs acquired in these areas, and then the acquisition of Mission Beach Bus Service, Mission Beach during 2003.

In June 2010, Trans North Bus & Coach was purchased by the "Donric Group" - pre-existing owners of Bacchus Marsh Coaches, Gold Bus, Organ's Bus Service & Sunbury Bus Service in Victoria. This takeover led to a number of acquisitions which are documented below.

Acquired run (P831) The Gorge to Finch Hatton State School from G. & J.E. O'Neill, Finch Hatten during July 2010, with vehicle 186 LHY (now 071 RBM).
Acquired runs (S64), (S143), (S239), (S252), (S268), (P748), (S751), (P1566) from B.F. & P.M. Cooper t/a Cooper's Bus Service, Mirani during July 2010, with all remaining vehicles.
Acquired a few runs from D.A. & H.E.M. Hastie t/a Hastie's Bus Service, Innisfail on 1 October 2010 , with vehicles 232 HBR, 873 KLI and 970 KQL - other remaining vehicles were retained by the Hastie's and privately sold.
