People's Express[1] was a bus company in the West Midlands which was acquired by Probus Management (trading as Pete's Travel) in June 1998 and then by the Go-Ahead Group in March 2006.

History[edit]

In May 1997, Probus Management acquired a 50% stake in People's Express which, at the time, operated 13 buses in West Bromwich. The remainder of the business was purchased by Probus Management in June 1998.[2]

On 28 March 2005, Probus Management changed its trading name from Pete's Travel to People's Express. On 21 March 2006, Probus Management was purchased by the Go-Ahead Group and integrated into its Go West Midlands operation with the People's Express name dropped from use.[3][4]

In March 2008, Go West Midlands was sold to Rotala and is now part of Diamond Bus.[5][6][7]
