Hino Bus and Coach

Hino first started manufacturing buses in Japan in 1946 as Hino Industry Co Ltd. In 1965 Hino set up in Australia and sold its first buses. The first bus ever built in Australia was by Freighter Industries in Adelaide and was sold into Tasmania.

Hino Buses continued to be sold in Australia in 1980-1998 as Hino Bus Australia before trading as Hino Motor Sales Australia (HMSA) as it is now today. HMSA still build buses on demand and on a custom made basis, continuing in the Hino tradition of Quality, Durability and Reliability (QDR).

Today Hino offer a selection of both fully built up buses and bus chassis’ with GVMs from 8.5 tonne to 16 tonne. Seating capacity starts at 35 in the FD240 through to 61 passengers for RK8J and RN8J school charter/day charter chassis.
