A double-decker bus of Grey-Green purchased for privatised London bus services

Grey-Green was a coach and bus operator in the United Kingdom. Grey-Green had its origins in several coach operator mergers, becoming one of two trading identities, the other being Orange, established in 1966[1].

As part of the Cowie Group, Grey-Green was one of the first private operators to operate London bus services following the process started with the privatisation of London bus services, operating nearly 20 routes in all. This involved the early gaining of high profile route 24 which passed along Whitehall, bringing non-red London buses directly into Central London, and also route 188 to Euston Station. Grey-Green also operated bus services in Kent, in Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone and Medway, and a commuter coach service from London.

Grey-Green bus livery was still in use as late as 1997 with new deliveries of Dennis Dart SLFs with Alexander ALX bodywork[2]. With the growth of the Cowie Group through acquisition of other bus operators, Grey Green co-existed for a time with other companies such as Kentish Bus.

Cowie Group eventually rebranded as Arriva, and Grey-Green's London operations were absorbed into Arriva London, and the other bus operations were absorbed by other Cowie group companies.
