Docklands Buses is one of many bus companies operating contracted services on behalf of London Buses.
The company was formed by Transit Holdings in 1993 as 'Docklands Transit'. It initially operated local commercial routes using minibuses, but these proved not to be viable so it switched to operating tendered services. Stagecoach purchased the bus side of the company in 1997, and Docklands Transit continued operating private hire vehicles. In 2002, they won the contract to operate ex-Arriva route London Buses route 167, soon winning other contracts after.
In September 2006 the company was purchased by London General,  a subsidiary of the Go-Ahead Group. As part of the Go-Ahead Group, their head office is based in Merton and they operate one bus garage in Silvertown (SI) which holds 38 buses. In August 2008 a new trading name for Go-Ahead's London operations was created, called Go-Ahead London.
They have 1 garage.
