Who Are We?

Welcome to Coachstop

Coachstop is a family-run business currently celebrating four generations of the Bridge Family who have been engaged in 100 years of passenger transport locally since 1922 (see history page).

Nowadays the business is operated by the great grandson of the original pioneer Henry Ritchie Bridge and provides a wide range of coach hire, corporate travel and transport facilities locally and throughout the UK.

With our fleet of mini-buses, midi-coaches and full-size standard & executive coaches, we are the preferred supplier for many schools and colleges in the county.

We also cater for all types of group travel and specialise in corporate groups; private hire; theatre trips; race meetings; wedding parties and short breaks or longer holidays throughout the UK and abroad.

You will find our staff friendly and helpful and our CRB checked drivers will ensure that your journey is pleasant and enjoyable.

For all your mini-bus & coach hire requirements call us on 01245 401541 for a free no obligation quote or contact us via email at [email protected] where our friendly team will be only too pleased to assist you.
