The origin of Picton Buslines lies with a Stan Rutter, also known as Tiger. He started a Picton bus service in 1945 selling to the partnership of Higlett and Lee in 1949 who operated in nearby Camden. The following year the partnership split with Lee retaining the Picton services and Higlett Camden. In 2000 the Lee family bowed out and the Buslines Group acquired the operation, but following the death of a partner in the Buslines Group a retructuring enabled the Ferris family to acquire Picton Buslines and separate from the group.
