Coach Star Ratings

The Bus and Coach Association (New Zealand) Inc, in conjunction with Vehicle Testing New Zealand, has developed a star grading system for coaches and buses which makes it easier for customers to compare the standards of service offered by individual bus and coach operators and allows tour operators and travellers to select products in advance with confidence. This star rating is only available to Bus and Coach Association members.

Why Choose Star Graded Coaches?

  • Star Grading promotes customer-oriented features in coaches.
  • The number of stars reprsents the coach quality.
  • Grading allows customers to distinguish between different standards of vehicles.
  • Customers can be sure they will get a coach with the features they want.
  • Coaches are graded by Vehicle Testing NZ Ltd, an independent testing authority.
  • Star grading is endorsed by the NZ Tourism Board, Travel Agents Association NZ (TAANZ), NZ Tourism Industry Association (NZTIA) and the Inbound Tour Operators Council (ITOC).
