North East Wales

Ceased Operators

This section is about bus and coach operators from the north east Wales area that have ceased trading or have been taken over by another firm. 

For each operator some background history is offered together with a historic fleet list.  These fleet lists have been provided principally by David Donati whom I am indebted for his dedication and hard work to produce such detailed information.

For each vehicle in the fleet list I have provided a link to a photograph(s) of the vehicle (where available).  If the photo appears to be taken while the vehicle was in the operators fleet - the link will be shown in capital letters.

I would be delighted and very grateful for any additions and/or corrections to the historic information. Please use the contact me link

To date the following ceased operators below are included - but others will be included in time.  Click on the name below to visit the relevant page.
