ManaBus.com was an internet based intercity express coach operator offering great value travel to 128 destinations across New Zealand to over 300,000 passengers per annum.
Souter Investments launched the start-up in October 2014 with state of the art double deck coaches incorporating leather seats, free Wi-Fi, power charging points, air conditioning and an on-board toilet. ManaBus.com was a pioneer of low cost travel in New Zealand by utilising its dynamic pricing model to offer tickets from NZD 1 (plus booking fee).
In April 2015, ManaBus.com acquired the business and assets of NakedBus.com, another low cost bus operator which had a complementary tourist offering and cross selling network of sightseeing packages and hotels.
In July 2018, ManaBus.com and NakedBus.com were sold to Ritchies Transport Holdings.
