Bus Wash Systems

Transport Wash Systems have been instrumental in upgrading our depot to a fully automated, water recycling, drive through bus wash system. I recommend them for this kind of work.

The bus and coach industry in Australia and New Zealand is competitive. A small group of dedicated players working hard to deliver great value to their customers. Gains in efficiency are needed and sought at every turn. Hence the need for automated bus wash systems.

These systems streamline vehicle maintenance, free up capable personnel to do more important jobs, recycle water and keep your vehicles and your brand looking their best. Even if you have a smaller fleet we have small fleet wash systems to suit your needs.

More About Bus Wash Options for Small Fleets

Gantry Bus Wash – Tammermatic Ultima

The Rainbow Ultima gantry from Tammermatic is the Swiss Army Knife of bus wash systems. Clever design and years of experience have resulted in a system that gives small to medium bus owners the best bang for your buck possible.

Designed and manufactured in Finland and supplied and serviced in Australia and New Zealand by Transport Wash Systems, the Rainbow Ultima is an impressive piece of smart engineering designed to keep your bus fleet clean and well maintained.

All Ultima systems utilise advanced control software to detect the position of the parked vehicle and wash it using a variety of programmable wash recipes that include pre-soaks, detergents, low pressure jets and rotating brushes. The brushes use load sensing technology to ensure that undue stress is not placed on your vehicle.

The ‘Oscillating Ultima’ adds oscillating high pressure jets which take cleaning to the next level and give the system the ability to wash unusually shaped vehicles. Because these jets are constantly moving they pose no threat to seals or other sensitive areas as they only point at one place for a fraction of a second.

These systems can be installed to use fresh or recycled water and come with the following options:

  • High pressure oscillating jets
  • Wheel and chassis wash
  • Separate chemical and rinse arches for speed

Hybrid Bus Wash – InterClean

Because many urban bus operators have bicycle racks or similar on the front and rear of their buses, hybrid bus wash systems use brushes for the sides and high pressure jets front and rear to deal with more complex shapes. Such systems have become popular due to their rapid throughput rate (washing a vehicle within 1 – 3 minutes), an excellent all round clean and versatility to wash any kind of bus.


  • Blowers
  • Various Brush Material Options
  • Reverse Osmosis Rinse
  • Fresh or recycled water

Touchless Bus Wash

Properly setup, a touchless wash is extremely versatile but doesn’t clean to the same level as the other systems that utilise brushes.

Not so popular with companies that only want to wash buses but worth considering as a highly flexible system that can wash basically any vehicle shape to a reasonable degree.

We have a touchless wash setup that cleans everything from logging trucks to earthmoving machinery to buses and work utes. It is versatile but, if you are just washing buses, some of the options above are probably better suited to your business.
