The Venture Transport Company was a major operator of bus services in the Derwent Valley between Consett and Newcastle upon Tyne. The company was absorbed by The Northern General Transport Company in 1970.

Resurrection of the Venture name[edit]

Shortly after deregulation, Go-Ahead Northern brought back the Venture name for services from the former Venture depot in High Spen.[1] More recently Go North East has reintroduced the name to promote services in the Consett area.
