Tour De Force – Cowan’s Bus Service



While most people her age are busy establishing a career, Katie Cowan wears many hats – juggling motherhood, a business and the occasional bus drive. For the past two years she’s managed the family business, taking over from her father, James.

She joined the company a decade ago, hosting charter tours across the country before driving buses.

The business is located in Sandy Hallow, a small rural town in New South Wales known for coal mining.

The company also provides school runs and has struggled obtaining drivers, but it didn’t mean Cowan sat still; she got her medium rigid licence at the age of 19.
