In 1955 Clarrie Wright began operating a Reo on routes 510 Melville Road – High Street and 511 North Essendon – Sydney Road along with six other operators. By 1969 Wright had bought out the other operators and formed Moreland Buslines.
In 1973 the business of Thompson Roadlines was purchased with Moreland entering the coach charter market and later operating safari tours to Central Australia. In July 1985 Taranto Bus Lines was purchased with route 512 Strathmore – East Coburg followed by Geographical Tours and Bakers Bus Lines. In 1996 Landmark Tours was purchased and Moreland began to operate services under contract to Greyhound Pioneer Australia, a relationship that continues as at 2013.
