Transdev Group is a global organisation that firmly believes in devolved, local decision making and the right of everyone’s freedom to move. We have a solid business base, committed to providing unrestricted, environment-friendly and, above all, safe travel for everyone. 11 million trips are made across 17 countries every day with a Transdev company. 

Here in the North of England, we’re continuing to develop our company and are committed to the growth of bus travel and how this enables a better life for everyone in our towns and cities. 

Our signature style and attention to detail is all about giving you, our customer, a relaxed, enjoyable and great value journey – and, as a research-led business, with all our decisions handled quickly and locally, we always welcome your feedback about everything we do.

Our amazing 1,300 colleagues across 10 bases - from Blackburn, in the north west, to Malton, near the North Yorkshire coast - make it happen for us each day. Our buses are at the heart of communities we serve, and we are committed to providing the highest quality of comprehensive service, seven days a week. We run under a variety of fiercely local brands that have become household names in the areas they serve.
