Grant & JanIn 1987 Grant Bingley purchased his first large coach, delivering school children to Westbury and Hagley Primary Schools. Over the next 20 years Grant’s business developed into a six bus fleet delivering to Westbury Primary School, Hagley Farm School and Prospect High School. In 2008 Westbus was established and a bus depot was purchased, what is known to locals as the “Gemstone” shed at 61-63 Meander Valley Rd, Westbury.

Jan Bingley worked with her parents in their family business for 10 years before buying the company, Loone’s Rural Services in 2000. Since then Jan has managed the business and now spends most of her time working in Westbus administration and driving occasionally. Jan’s parents, Bob & Olive Loone have had school buses since 1975 and Jan first learnt to drive a large bus at the age of 21 in a twinsteer Bedford bus.
