In 1919 Henry Lee, a bicycle salesman from London, moved to Graveley in Huntingdonshire, bought an American ambulance and made it into the first Whippet coach. After three generations of family ownership the company became part of the Tower Transit Group in November 2014. www.towertransit.co.uk
Whippet Coaches takes great pride in operating buses and coaches. Our aim is to operate reliable, reasonably priced services driven by friendly drivers. We run local buses (including one of the routes along the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway) and a National Express service between Cambridge and London Victoria. We also provide services to schools and colleges using a variety of vehicles to suit their different requirements.
We are interested in partnership working with local authorities, businesses and education establishments to deliver public transport options that help reduce congestion, improve social inclusion and take some of the stress out of the daily commute.
Facts and Figures
- Over 750,000 passenger journeys were made on our local bus services in 2015
- As at August 2016, the average age of our fleet is 11 years old and rapidly dropping as we continue to invest in new or replacement vehicles
