Garage History

Grey Green opened Barking Bus Garage in 1991 after securing 5 routes in the most recent tendering process. Additionally, when Barking opened, Dix Coaches, owned by Grey Green, relocated to the garage from its previous Dagenham Base, hence the DX garage code.

Cowie Group, owners of Grey Green, rebranded the business to Arriva in 1998 and Barking Garage was placed under the Arriva London North business.
