Advanced Liner Bus Transport, Incorporated (formerly Husky Tours, Biocrest Multi-Purpose Cooperative) is a bus line under the umbrella of Yanson Group of Bus Companies (YGBC). It operates bus transport services from General Santos City, SOCCSKSARGEN Region, and has their own base in Apopong, General Santos City .
It started when the officers and employees of Biocrest Corporation and Eleventh Marketing Corporation to organize a transport service company. Thus the formation of Biocrest Multi-Purpose Cooperative and Transport Services, with Biocrest Multi-Purpose Cooperative as its parent company with its function to address the credit and consumer needs of its employees and members. Their Multi-Purpose Cooperative was then granted by the Department of Labor and Employment in 2005 through the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) of Region XII.
Although the company's name was Biocrest Multi-Purpose Cooperative and Transport Services, they choose to use the branding "Husky Tours" with a Siberian Husky as their corporate logo and branding. They debuted the route from General Santos City to Cotabato City via Koronadal City, Tacurong City, Isulan and Shariff Aguak.
They started with several coaches made from Almazora Motors. A several Hino RK Cats Eye air-conditioned and ordinary fare units, and some old buses from the defunct KTM Tours which Husky once bought were began to use for Husky Tours' operations.
By that time, bus companies are afraid to serve the General Santos - Cotabato route due to in-surging conflicts between the government and rebel groups along the mountainous areas of SOCCSKARGEN Region. Thus, only Husky Tours serve the said route up until today.
In 2012, Husky Tours began to dissolve their ordinary-fare buses and stick to their air-conditioned units. At that same year, Chinese bus manufacturer Sunlong was about to expand their sales to the Philippine Market. Husky Tours then ordered several Sunlong SLK6106 and became the first bus company to operate a Sunlong bus in the Philippines. When their orders finally arrive in the Manila from China and in delivery to their headquarters in General Santos, Sunlong uses those Husky Tours buses as their marketing campaign with Sunlong's promotional ads in place at their bus units.
In 2015, they ordered 12 bus units from Guilin Daewoo. By the following year, another 12 bus units were ordered from Zhongtong. The new orders pushes them to replace their old units with these new ones.
In 2017, Yanson Group bought out Husky Tours, Biocrest Multi-Purpose Cooperative., and integrated its operations with Advanced Liner Bus Transport Incorporated.
