Edwards Coaches Ltd. is an award-winning fifth generation multi-skilled family business established in 1925. We are committed to quality, continuous improvement, innovation and training. We employ over 700 staff and have a total fleet of 300 vehicles including 266 coaches, 20 buses and 14 mini-buses. One of the largest coach companies in Wales, we undertake all aspects of coach/bus operation including Holidays, School Transport, National Express, Private Hire and Local Bus services. In addition, we own and run a fantastic hotel in Cornwall.
We are extremely proud of our holiday programme which carries over 80,000 clients per year, alongside our school bus service which transports over 6,500 students every day. All staff are locally employed and our team is just as passionate as the directors, treating the company as their own. Many local families are dependent on our business and we have generations of families working alongside us.
We have recently moved into our brand new headquarters in Llantrisant, a 25-acre site boasting a customer park and ride facility, spacious customer waiting room, maintenance depot with its own MOT test centre, body repair shop, bus wash and spray booth. There are also satellite depots in Abercynon, Wattstown, Barry, Newport, Cardiff, Llanelli and a full maintenance facility in Llansamlet, Swansea. We also operate depots in Bristol and London for National Express.
We have a busy private hire department that provides coaches for not only local clubs and schools but the Wales rugby and football teams, Cardiff City football club, The British Lions and most of the visiting teams and artists to the Principality Stadium.
