Stagecoach in Peterborough is a bus company, which runs services throughout Peterborough and the surrounding areas. It is part of Stagecoach Cambridgeshire, itself a subsidiary of the larger Stagecoach Group.

Stagecoach in Peterborough is the trading name of The Viscount Bus and Coach Company Limited, demerged as a subsidiary undertaking of Cambus Holdings Limited in 1989. Cambus Limited was formed in 1984 from demerger of the Eastern Counties Omnibus Company in preparation for bus deregulation and privatisation and was acquired by the Stagecoach Group Plc in 1995.

Its main depot and head office is in Peterborough; it also operates from outstations based in Lincoln, Holbeach Drove, Oundle, and March.

History

The Viscount Bus and Coach Company Ltd. was incorporated on 9 May 1989[1] as a subsidiary of Cambus Holdings Ltd., the management-owned holding company for Cambus Ltd. It took over the North Division operations of Cambus in September 1989. It introduced a livery of yellow and white with blue and grey stripes,[2] while the coach livery incorporated a V logo in the stripes.[3][4] Later there was also a Peterborough Bus Company version, using reds and cream.[5]

Following the acquisition by Cambus Holdings of the bulk of Premier Travel Services Ltd. in May 1990, Viscount's coaching operations (Viscount Travel) were transferred to Premier Travel (which adopted a new livery based closely on that of Viscount, but using blues instead of yellow[6]).

Cambus Holdings Ltd. was acquired by Stagecoach Holdings plc on 6 December 1995. Subsequently, full Stagecoach "stripes" livery was applied, with "Stagecoach Viscount" branding. The current livery with "Stagecoach in Peterborough" appeared later.
