Company History

Thirdwave Bus Services was started in 1985 by Murray Nicholl with just one van driving from Delta to Vancouver and back each day. Soon more vans were added to meet the demand from the school district. In 1987 Delta School District tendered it’s wheel-chair student transportation and Thirdwave Bus Services was awarded the four bus contract for 3 years. This was the big turning point for Thirdwave Bus Services as we had moved away from vans to purchasing new school buses.

Since then Thirdwave has expanded in to many other school districts and grown our fleet to over 170 buses.

Expansion of the charter market has also increased the long-term stability of the company. We are proud to say that we are one of the few remaining locally owned and operated school bus companies in British Columbia.
