The origins of Green Bus can be traced to 2001 when King Edward VI Five Ways School, Birmingham commenced operating a bus service to transport its students. In September 2005, it became a separate company. It soon began operating services serving other schools within the Foundation of the Schools of King Edward VI. By 2013 it was operating 55 school bus services in Berkshire, Merseyside, Surrey, the West Midlands and Worcestershire.
The Green Bus operated routes 50 and 50A from Birmingham to Maypole and Redditch until December 2014. It operates services to Birmingham and West Bromwich Albion football clubs during home matches.
The Green Bus commenced operation of route 22 on 3 March 2014, which serves Birmingham Town Hall, Harborne, Bartley Green, Halesowen, Colley Gate and Merry Hill, which ended in the summer of the same year.
As of July 2015, the fleet consists of 25 buses: 13 Dennis Tridents, 6 Optare Spectras and 6 Volvo Olympians. The reserve (withdrawn) fleet consists of 8 Dennis Tridents and an MCW Metrobus.
