AARD Motor Services Association of N.Z.

AARD Motor Services (Firm)

First organisation in New Zealand of long distance route and tourist service operators, formed in 1918. Its success, mainly in the North Island, led to the establishment in the South Island of White Star Tourist Services in 1924. The organisation began to decline in 1928 when many services were purchased by NZ Railways Road Services.
