Stagecoach West celebrates 30 years in business
Bus operator Stagecoach West has celebrated its 30th anniversary with a 30th birthday cake at Cheltenham and Gloucester offices for all staff to enjoy.
In November 1993 bus operator Stagecoach acquired Western Travel – established in 1986 and made up of the Cheltenham and Gloucester Omnibus Company and the National Bus Company’s Swindon and District operation - forming Stagecoach West.
In the past 30 years Stagecoach West has grown and increased its networks, acquiring Bristol Depot in 2019 and merging with Stagecoach Oxfordshire in 2021.
Rachel Geliamassi, Managing Director of Stagecoach West said: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful teams and customers for making Stagecoach West the success it is today.
"We play a vital role in thousands of people’s lives every day, taking them to work or school, to appointments or holidays and days out – a role we value and care about.
“So, here’s to the next 30 years and all the exciting challenges ahead - a time of change with the introduction of more electric vehicles to our fleet, adopting new technologies and continuing to put our customers at the heart of everything we do."
