Souter Investments, the private investment operation of Brian Souter, has taken a majority stake in OnniBus, the Finnish intercity express coach business founded in 2012. The funding from Souter Investments will be used to develop a new service network under the OnniBus.com brand, to purchase new coaches, and will create 60 new jobs at the company.

Souter says: “We are delighted to add OnniBus.com to our portfolio of global transport businesses. We believe there is a fantastic opportunity in the Finnish intercity express coach market and we see enormous potential in the OnniBus.com business as it seeks to establish a market-leading position.”

The investment has been made by Highland Global Transport, Souter Investments’ transport arm. HGT director Roger Bowker has joined the board of OnniBus.com as executive chairman, having  enjoyed a long international career with Stagecoach Group. HTG has interests in two local bus operators in New Zealand and in the PolskiBus.com coach operation in Poland.
