Borders Buses[1] is a bus company based in Berwick-upon-Tweed, England.

Borders Buses can trace its origins back to 1972, when a taxi service commenced operating in the small village of Burnmouth in the Scottish Borders under the Perryman's banner, before moving to new larger premises in Berwick-upon-Tweed in 2002. In 2013 a second depot was opened in St Boswells following the winning of a number of routes previously operated by Munro's of Jedburgh.[2][3] In February 2016, the business was sold by Richard Perryman to West Coast Motors.[4][5]

In 2016, Perryman's took over several services from First Scotland East.[6][7] In July 2017, the business was rebranded as Borders Buses.[8][9]

As of August 2018, Borders Buses operated 40 services.[10]
