Bus Queensland is owned by the Pulitano family who also own Cranbourne Transit and Mansfield-Mount Buller Bus Lines in Victoria. The Pulitano's previously owned Australian Coach Travel, before it ceased operations, and U.S. Bus Lines, until it was sold to Ventura Bus Lines.

Park Ridge Transit
In 1988, the Pulitano Group ventured into Queensland operations, and purchased Park Ridge Transit from Penfold's Greyhound Coaches. In mid 2008, Bus Queensland acquired the operation of Woodhill Coaches, who operated a number of school runs in the Beaudesert area.

Westside Bus Company, Ipswich
In August 1998, the Pulitano Group purchased Doyle's Bus Service t/a Westside Bus Company; who operated a number of school runs and a few urban runs. Later in 2001, Pulitano's acquired Heritage City Sunbus, and then Stagecoach Ipswich which gave them the majority of school & urban runs throughout the shire of Ipswich. Westside also acquired a few school runs belonging to Jolly Jumbuck Tours in about 2007, plus some special education contracts from Mini Bus Services.

Bus Queensland Toowoomba
In early 2009, it was announced that Bus Queensland has successfully purchased two of the major operators in Toowoomba; being Kynoch Coaches & Garden City Sunbus, with the official takeover taking place on April 1, 2009. Kynoch was a predominately school and charter operator and Garden City Sunbus operated the majority of the urban runs. Both operations were later merged and operate out of one central depot in Taylor Street; and trade as Bus Queensland Toowoomba.

Bus Queensland Lockyer Valley, Laidley
In January 2010, the Pulitano's purchased the Laidley Bus Service from Don & Ruth Lergesner who operate a number of school runs in the Lockyer Valley region, and the local 539 railbus. This operation was renamed Bus Queensland Lockyer Valley.

All operations have now been re branded from their previous names and now consist of Bus Queensland Ipswich, Lockyer Valley, Park Ridge & Toowoomba.
