Although several coaching pools for express services were established in the late 1920s, it was not until 1972, three years after the formation of the National Bus Company, that a nationwide, fully coordinated express coach network came into being under the National banner. With coaches provided by the various NBC subsidiaries, National Express dominated the scene and continues to do so today despite opposition from other major operators. Over its forty-five years of existence it has introduced numerous innovative features and developed a motorway network of routes, some of which have been operated by double-deck vehicles, and has become a familiar sight across the whole of the UK. In this book, the history of National Express is covered comprehensively by author Keith Jenkinson in both text and photographs.

The company's head office is based in Birmingham, in offices above the new Birmingham Coach Station. Following the Transport Act 1968, the National Bus Company (NBC) was formed and many local bus companies were nationalised. Many of these bus companies also operated coach services and these were marketed as National Express from 1972 (the actual coach services continued to be operated by the individual companies). Coach services were de-regulated under the Transport Act 1980 and buses by the Transport Act 1985. The National Bus Company was privatised and National Express Holdings Ltd was formed in 1998 following a management buy-out; National Express Group (NEG) was formed in 1991 prior to the company being floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1992. It was given a remit to acquire new businesses in the passenger transport market, National Express was as a subsidiary company. During 2001, National Express took the decision to end the historic on-board steward/ess service. Phil White, their then MD had stated he felt they made the company look old fashioned and passengers did not need them. For most of ...
