East London Bus Group, is a bus company which is part of investment bank Macquarie Bank. It principally operates services in the UKmarker capital city of Londonmarker, under contract to the London Buses arm of Transport for London. It was once a subsidiary of the Stagecoach Group, formerly known as Stagecoach London.

In 2005, Stagecoach London was reported as the bus company with the third-most complaints filed with Transport for London, after Arriva London (1st place), and Metroline (2nd place).

History

Stagecoach London was created from East London Bus & Coach Company Ltd and South East London & Kent Bus Company Ltd. Both companies were acquired by the Stagecoach Group from state-owned London Buses when its subsidiaries were privatised. Legally these companies still exist, and Stagecoach London's buses carried legal lettering for either one or other of these companies.

Both the buses involved in the 7 July 2005 London Bombings and 21 July 2005 London Bombingsmarker belonged to Stagecoach London.

On 23 June 2006 The Stagecoach Group agreed to sell its London operations to Australian investment bank Macquarie. The sale was completed in August of the same year and the management remained the same. Stagecoach gave permission for Macquarie to use the Stagecoach London name for a limited time. Quickly the fleets both turned allover red again, and were given back their old logos, albeit in lower-case lettering rather than capitals.

Operation

East London Bus Group operates London contracted services under the brands East London, Selkent and Thameside, but these brands tended to be overwhelmed by the much stronger London Buses brand. There also used to be a coaching operation under the brand East London Coaches which ceased operation in February 2007 and a Travelshop which closed in March 2009 that was based at the Company's Ilford Head Office.
