Qbuzz is a public transport bus company in the Netherlands that operates services in Utrecht, Drenthe, Groningen, and Friesland. The company was founded in 2008 and has been a full subsidiary of Nederlandse Spoorwegen since 2013.
Qbuzz was founded in 2008 by two former directors of Connexxion. Having a 49% stake in Qbuzz upon foundation, NS obtained the remaining 51% in 2013, resulting in Qbuzz being a 100% daughter of NS. Qbuzz has faced a number of legal challenges by established transport operators in the Netherlands.
Qbuzz started providing bus services in Friesland and Rotterdam; in 2009 it won the right to run bus services in Groningen and Drenthe from Arriva. Since December 2011, Qbuzz operates the bus and sneltram services in Utrecht using the name U-OV.
