Kistler was founded in 1969 when the municipalities decided to set up a public school bus service. Then the company founder Alfons Kistler and his wife Katharina bought the first used bus. The following year, a line of workers was added and it also started the time of smaller excursions of clubs, companies and schools, so that in 1971, the first new bus was purchased.
In 1973, the acquisition of a private line in Dachau resulted in the purchase of a third bus. In the following years, customer interest in larger trips grew more comfortable. Also a guest worker line to Yugoslavia, which was served weekly, was added, so that the bus stock of 3 - 4 buses was renewed again and again.
In 1978, the private line was sold in Dachau, but in 1980 this was compensated by the commissioning of the company's own 590 line as part of the MVV, which by the end of 2006 connected the locations in eastern woodland.
In 1985, the first son Alfons Kistler jun. after a completed apprenticeship as a car mechanic in the operation supported the father in all matters, even as a driver. In 1986, for example, the first modern distance coach with toilet, air conditioning, kitchen, etc. was acquired, followed in 1987 by the second.
In November 1987, after the sudden death of the company founder Alfons Kistler sen., his wife Katharina, who had already done all the office work, and the older son Alfons took over the business. From the end of 1989, the second son Josef joined the company. The fleet slowly grew to four, then five buses.
From the beginning of the year 1993 up to December 2003 the company took over in Munich a day travel office, which offered daily 3 - 4 journeys, so that the bus stock was increased by further 2 vehicles. By taking over a small bus company from Wartenberg with three school bus lines, the fleet was expanded in 1995 to 10 vehicles.
In June 2000, after the company owner Katharina Kistler went into well-deserved retirement, the Kistler Bustouristik GmbH with the managing directors Alfons and Josef Kistler was founded. In August 2000 they started the construction of a new depot, which was completed in 2004. There is a hall with in-house workshop and other parking facilities for our buses.
The first used Setra double-decker 328 DT was put into operation in 2009 and only three years later replaced by a Setra 431 DT in 2012. By participating in the tender for the BMW worker bus lines for the first time in company history in 2009, five routes were won. The fleet grew up to 15 vehicles.
In the course of time, the rental business sector developed more and more into the mainstay of the company. In 2014, Benedikt, Alfons Kistler's eldest son, joined the company. In 2017 the construction of a new office building began, which was completed at the turn of the year 2017/2018.
In 2019, a new tender for the BMW worker bus lines resulted in additional gains, so that from August 2019 ten worker bus routes to the Munich property wil be served daily. The fleet has meanwhile grown continuously to a proud 32 vehicles at the end of 2019.
