Company history[]

Metroline was established in December 1988[1] as one of 12 operating subsidiaries by London Buses in preparation for privatisation. In October 1994 Metroline was sold to MTL and in March 2000 to DelGro Corporation.[2] In August 2004 ComfortDelGro purchased Thorpe & Sons[3] and in November 2004 Armchair Passenger Transport Company[4] with seven routes and 86 buses. Initially both retained their existing names before being rebranded in January 2007.[2]

When privatised, Metroline adopted a livery of red with a dark blue skirt. This was briefly changed to light blue in the mid 2000s before the dark blue was reinstated. In June 2009, Metroline adopted an all red scheme to comply with Transport for London requirements.

On 22 June 2013, Metroline purchased FirstGroup's Alperton, Greenford, Hayes, Uxbridge and Willesden Junction depots with 494 buses.[5]

When Edgware garage was first opened by the London General Omnibus Company in 1925 it had space for 24 buses, but there was plenty of room adjacent to the then recently built underground station.

In 1939 a new building was erected next to the original one, which was to become the new bus station, while the remaining open parking Cricklewood garage was to become a fully functioning garage with new facilities. The outdoor parking area and the bus station then became a midibus base in 1993, with a new bus wash and light maintenance facilities provided in the yard.

In 1999 London Sovereign, which had won some recent tenders in the North East London area, took on a 10-year lease on half of Edgware garage and invested in new maintenance facilities to replace its former base at Borehamwood. In late 2000 Metroline moved back into the other half of the garage, making it one of the few garages to be shared by two operators.
