About us


We operate one of the North’s largest fleets of private hire passenger vehicles, providing first-class transport by luxury coach or executive mini-coach for a full range of customers, wherever you choose to go.


Our travel services include a selection of carefully hand-picked coach holidays throughout the UK and Ireland and across the continent, along with day excursions and trips to Britain’s top live music, theatre and sporting events, with all-important admission tickets as part of the deal.


The quality of service we provide has seen us link up with global travel giant Kuoni to operate some of their prestigious UK & Ireland tours for visitors from the Far East.


Back at our base in Wigton, we can provide private hire coaches for groups of any size for any occasion, including transport for wedding guests. We also operate the Lakes Hopper public bus service through the beautiful Lake District, featuring our open-top double-decker vehicles, plus City Hopper routes in Carlisle and North Cumbria.


We run a series of school and public bus services throughout Cumbria and are the official first-team coach supplier for Burnley, Carlisle United, Fleetwood Town and Accrington Stanley football clubs as part of an extensive portfolio of professional and amateur sports clubs.

We also operate our own travel centre in Carlisle city centre along, with a depot at Egremont in Cumbria.
