The Scottish Bus Group was a state-owned Scottish holding company that included a number of bus operators covering the whole of Scotland. The group was formed in 1961 as Scottish Omnibuses Group (Holdings) Ltd, to take control of the British Transport Commission's bus operating subsidiaries in Scotland. In 1962 the group became part of the Transport Holding Company when the British Transport Commission was wound up. The group was renamed Scottish Bus Group in 1963 and became part of the Scottish Transport Group on 1 January 1969, together with David MacBrayne Ltd.
After reorganisation in 1985:
All of the operating companies were privatised in the early 1990s, with Central Scottish and Kelvin Scottish being merged as Kelvin Central Buses. Though Clydeside Scottish was remerged into Western Scottish so as to provide a healthier prospect for potential buyers, both companies ended up being sold as separate entities.
The holding company, Scottish Bus Group Ltd, was dissolved in 2002.
