Arriva Buses Wales - History


The original predecessor of Arriva Buses Wales was Crosville Motor Services, who ran services in Wales and northern England. The company was split following deregulation in 1986, with the Welsh operation called Crosville Cymru. The English operations would eventually be split between Arriva Midlands, Arriva North West and First Chester & The Wirral.

Crosville Cymru was bought by its management team in 1987 before being taken over by National Express Group in 1989. Drawlane would buy the company in 1991, with Drawlane eventually renamed as British Bus and then Arriva. The company would be known as Arriva Cymru until 25 February 2002, when it merged with Arriva North West, forming part of Arriva North West and Wales. However, on 1 January 2009, the Welsh operations were split off again, under a new managing director, Michael Morton, and a management team based at Llandudno Junction. In late 2012 the management moved to the Bangor depot due to the planned closure and selling of the Llandudno Junction Depot. Llandudno Junction depot closed down in April 2013.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The steps toward the emancipation of women are first intellectual, then industrial, lastly legal and political. Great strides in the first two of these stages already have been made of millions of women who do not yet perceive that it is surely carrying them towards the last.
    Ellen Battelle Dietrick, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 13, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)

    The history of all previous societies has been the history of class struggles.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    History is the present. That’s why every generation writes it anew. But what most people think of as history is its end product, myth.
    —E.L. (Edgar Lawrence)
