Note
In 1926 Mr Garner took thirteen passengers in a Studebaker President 6 to the opening of Canberra's Parliament House, taking two days to make the trip down. In 1917 Mr Garner ran a passenger service between Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads, providing competition for the passenger launches. His cars were eight-seater Studebakers but he later had the chassis cut and converted his vehicles to fifteen seaters. His cars were sold to the Blue and Red Bus Company, which was bought out by Greyhound Bus Company. [Reference source: R. Sullivan (Ed.)
