QBIC represents Bus and Coach Operators throughout the entire State. From the Cape to the Coast and west to Mt Isa, QBIC has strong metropolitan and regional bases. QBIC also has an excellent network of Branches where Members have the opportunity to meet and discuss critical issues with other Operators in their areas. These regional Branches are a key advantage QBIC has to ensure all Members have a forum in which to voice their concerns and seek solutions to their problems.

QBIC’s representation is achieved through a well balanced sector Committee structure consisting of the following Committees, School Services Committee, Commercial Contracts Committee and Long Distance, Tour and Charter Committee.

The general control and management of the Association is the responsibility of the Management Committee, which consists of a President, Vice President and Treasurer elected at a General Meeting of the Members and six other representatives drawn from the elected sector Committees.

The Queensland Bus Industry Council was incorporated on the 27th of April 2000 following the amalgamation of the Bus & Coach Association (QLD) Inc and the Bus Operators Association (QLD) Inc.
