About Bus Norte

The transportation company Bus Norte was founded at the end of the sixties, offering its first services from and to the cities of Puerto Montt, Los Muermos and Maullín.

The company was founded by Osvaldo Cid Moraga, along with its five sons; Juan, Hugo, René, Héctor and Ana María. After a few years the company grew and added services to Osorno passing by other cities and localities during the journey, including Hueyusca, Crucero, Tegualda, Purranque and other frequent destinations in the region.

Such good results took them to extend their services to Valparaíso and Santiago, becoming one of the main passenger transportation companies in the country. In 1982, they started services to Punta Arenas, using the route of San Carlos de Bariloche.

In April 2001, their policies and  administrative management gave them better results, allowing them also to acquire new buses, becoming one of the first companies in the country to incorporate double decker buses to their fleet. At the end of 2005, they made an effort to incorporate management administrative technology, achieving to digitize and enable online sales. In 2006, Bus Norte became the first company in Chile to have an on board internet system for its passengers through 3G technology.

Currently Bus Norte also offers cargo services, plus the Bus Norte club, a special space for frequent travelers who get rewarded with benefits when they choose to travel with the company and subscribe on their website.
