People's Express was the trading name of Salelink, a bus company in the West Midlands which was acquired by Probus Management (trading as Pete's Travel) in 1998 and then by the Go-Ahead Group in 2006.

In May 1997 Probus acquired a 50% stake in People's Express which, at the time, operated 13 buses in West Bromwich. The remainder of People's Express was bought by Probus in June 1998.

After 28 March 2005 Probus Management changed its trading name from Pete's Travel to People's Express.

However, the Go-Ahead Group purchased Probus Management in 2006 and scrapped the People's Express name, replacing it with Birmingham Coach Company's Diamond Bus, later Diamond, operated by Go West Midlands.

In March 2008, Go West Midlands was sold to Rotala's Central Connect.[1]
