Our story

Sometimes even complete strangers can make nice and cheerful companions. The route seems shorter and the world around looks better and brighter. The journey becomes a true experience. Hansabuss has been a witness to that since the times when our buses were yet small and carried big and little VIPs. Our business has grown and the buses have become longer, but the shared joy of the road is still there. We keep asking ourselves and our clients: what is the secret? The answer is punctuality, quality and nice little things that no one expects. We know that great service is made up of small details. It’s in them that we lead the way in the Baltics.
