Barking was opened by Grey Green in 1991 following their successful gain of 5 routes in the latest round of tendering. Also upon opening, the Grey Green owned Dix Coaches operation moved to the garage from its former 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.
