Keen to quickly expand during the 1980s, Stagecoach purchased three former National Bus Company subsidiaries during its sell-off in 1986/7 to give it a foothold in the English bus market. Finding this move to be successful, the company then set about a further expansion programme with the purchase of twenty-six more major, and several independent, companies to become Britain’s largest bus operator and followed this with the acquisition of a number of Welsh companies.

Looking further afield, Stagecoach then purchased some bus companies in Malawi, Kenya, Hong Kong and New Zealand to become a global operator. This book covers all of these activities and is an evocative look at the first twenty years of Stagecoach beyond Scotland.
