About Flota Occidental Bus Company
Flota Occidental started working in 1955 in Quinchia, Risaralda with the popular Chivas or ladder buses that mobilized passengers through the different municipalities of Risaralda and Caldas. In its beginnings, it was known as Caldasmar but by including more routes to departments such as Choco, Quindio, Antioquia, Cundinamarca, and Valle del Cauca, among other areas of the country, it changed its name definitively to Flota Occidental, a name that is still maintained and with which this bus operator is recognized in the Colombian road transportation industry. It currently covers 13 of the 14 municipalities of Risaralda.
The main office of Flota Occidental is located in Pereira, although it has 36 agencies nationwide, from where they manage to send the different services such as passenger transport, tourism service, cargo, and parcels nationwide. Flota Occidental has trained staff to constantly improve each of the company's internal processes, as well as a modern and technological automotive park. This has allowed Flota Occidental to receive several Icontec quality awards and certifications, given the high standards they handle for the maintenance of their fleet.
