Ritchies has grown over more than 85 years to become one of New Zealand’s most successful bus and coach tour companies.
We started from humble beginnings in 1935 in the small New Zealand town of Temuka and are now a nationwide business with teams and depots from Kaitaia in the north, to Gore in the deep heartland of the South. From that first bus all those years ago Ritchies have built up a diverse fleet of over 1600 vehicles and around 2,000 dedicated employees with a dedicated focus on providing the best customer experience.
Driving a bus or coach is an exciting adventure.
Our drivers get to meet new people every day and visit some of the most beautiful places in New Zealand. We operate our own dedicated driver training school with a team of NZQA qualified instructors. This allows us to take individuals who we feel have the right potential for our business, through the licensing and training requirements necessary to become a Ritchies bus driver with a Passenger Endorsement.
We can offer flexible hours and a friendly work environment with the opportunity to build a career in an industry that's making a difference. Many of our drivers, mechanics and cleaners have been promoted through the company.
