The Bus and its Magicians

Hi ! 🤗

I am Lisette, the founder of MagicBus. For a little bit of context, I was born in 1993 (I’ll let you guess my age) and my background is in interior design and event design. I started my “mini” career as an event designer in Montreal for C2 Montreal (it was awesome!). Then I quickly decided to throw myself into this crazy project and, for that, to fly back to Europe. 

When I started to work on this crazy idea, in 2014, I was still studying and I actually did a bit more studies specially for that purpose (included a DESS in HEC Montreal to build the business plan). And 4 years later, I came back to Europe to make it happen here, in France. Of course, it wasn’t easy and it took A LOT more time than expected but I guess I did it! 😇 

Well, I could speak about the MagicBus journey for hours, but I’ll try to keep it simple here. If you want more stories, read this article where I write about the beginnings of MagicBus. And for more information, do not hesitate to email me, or come and meet me directly on board


The story begins..

Our baby MagicBus was born on 23th of december 2019. On that very day –after a few months of research– I found MagicBus on LeBonCoin, and 24 hours later (the longest and most stressful 24 hours of my life) it was in my garden. It was a huge 12 meters long white bus, with 60 seats inside, some lost students’ notebooks and a lot of chewing gum still glued under the seats. What a nice Christmas gift !

Then it became HOME...

The conversion part was definitely one of the best part! We builded MagicBus with the aim of welcoming travellers in comfy home, imagining sharing life stories and a couple of drinks in a good atmosphere. It actually happened, and I must say that I am more than satisfied with the result 🤩 . 

  • 8 travellers beds (single beds)
  • 1 kitchen fully equipped : oven, fridge, cooking hobs, ...
  • 1 shower with a view AND hot water
  • Storages for your backpack
  • A roof top
  • Solar pannels
  • Blind for sunny outside lunches
  • Coffee and tea at will!
  • Boardgames, outside games, a canoe, skateboard, ...

But none of this would've been possible without...

The MagicPeople

These people are Magic and nothing would have been possible without them! They are our MagicPeople ❤️. Some participated to our crowdfunding campaign, some helped with their skill in mechanics or bodywork, some have been a real phsycological support, some came to help us building the interior of the bus up in the mountain, etc…
