Introducing the region’s buses

Today’s bus operations in the North East are provided by three main operators who emerged from five former National Bus and PTE bus companies following some consolidation in the market, bringing greater integration and consistency across the region, in addition to a number of privately and often family owned local ‘independent’ operators with transport histories dating back to the 1960’s and beyond.

Whilst the bus operators remain separate companies, as they did before deregulation, today they are working even closer together to bring a more harmonious vision and message for buses and bus passengers, with a strong will to work with stakeholders to make bus services even better, as presented in this document.
