Badgerline

Details

In 2011 Badgerline marked a quarter century as a separate business. Created prior to privatisation, the brand name was established in 1985, it was not until the following year that the company was formally established, initially as a subsidiary of NBC prior to the sale to its management. Under its new owners the company grew through acquisition of operators such as Western National and Midland Red West, Eastern National, Potteries Motor Traction and Yorkshire Rider. When it merged with GRT to form FirstBus (later FirstGroup), Badgerline operated more than 4000 buses across the UK. It also had a toehold in railway franchising business through a shareholding in Great Western Trains. The Badgerline bus service extended as far as Chippenham, Gloucester, Salisbury, Taunton, Yeovil and also operated National Express Coaches to London. Martin Curtis and Mike Walker provide a pictorial account of Badgerline, with a selection of photographs showing Badgerline buses across the country, in a variety of liveries.
