On 29 September 1996, Swan Transit commenced operating services in the Canning Vale and Southern River areas from depots in Canning Vale and Southern River with 119 Mercedes-Benz and Renault buses.
In September 2002, Swan Transit purchased the Perth operations of Connex WA. It initially traded as Swan Transit Riverside. Connex (now Transdev) would re-enter the market in September 2004 when it purchased Southern Coast Transit from National Express.
In May 2011, Swan Transit commenced an eight-year contract to operate services in the Marmion contract area. The Marmion contract area includes Karrinyup depot which was operated by Path Transit. However, Swan Transit did not retain the Kalamunda contract, which was taken over by Path Transit in October 2012.
In October 2019, Swan Transit was successful in retaining its Marmion and Claremont contracts, as well as gaining the Joondalup contract, taking over the Joondalup operations from Transdev WA on 19 January 2020. The three contracts will run for 10 years and expire in January 2030.
