Adelaide is surprisingly vibrant with its many festivals and events. We will provide a professional service for all your transport requirements to any part of Adelaide and its surroundings.

Des's Minibus looks forward to providing transport for you to all events happening around Adelaide from January through to December, everyday and all year around.

With Des's Minibus you can choose:

  • what time you and your friends get collected to head to your event
  • what time you and your friends get collected to head home or another venue at the end of the event
  • how many pick up and drop off locations you need
  • how many of your friends join you on the bus (we have 7, 13, 21 and 24 seat buses and will use them in any combination you require for bigger groups)
  • whether or not the bus stays with you for the day (in case you need to take director's chairs, picnic lunches, change of clothes with you because of inclement weather, eskies filled with water and soft drinks etc.)

Talk to us on 8440 1600 or send us a Quote Enquiry with your details and those of the event and we'll get back to you with a free, no obligation quote.
