Effectively established in 1976 and specialising in the daily transportation of mine and power-station personnel since 1983, Phola Coaches was formed in 2002 as a result of a strategic Black Empowerment partnership.

Phola Coaches offers clients in the Mining, Power Generation, and Construction industries safe, cost effective and reliable passenger transport solutions. However, our services are also available to a range of other sectors. Although we operate predominantly in Mpumalanga’s coal mining region of Witbank and Middelburg, as well as in Gauteng, our services are offered country wide.
Our current fleet of 200 buses, the average age thereof being less than 3 years, is ideally suited to meet the requirements of our clients.  Furthermore, our infrastructure is strategically placed to ensure maximum effectiveness in terms of logistics and costs.
Client relationships are viewed as long-term partnerships based on mutual values. This has resulted in a loyal, blue-chip client base; many of whom have been with us for a number of years and in some instances - even decades.
Today, we are continuing to maintain growth by focussing on long - term passenger transport contracts with clients such as BHP Billiton, Anglo Coal, Optimum Colliery and Eskom.
