Garage History

Croydon Bus Garage (C) was opened by Metrobus in December 2005 as a yard to house Transport for London route 127, which was surrendered by Centra. The garage buildings were finally completed in February 2006, when it also became home to the London routes formerly run by Godstone Garage.

Metrobus was sold to the Go Ahead group in September 1999 and operated as a subsidiary company, before being placed under the control of Go Ahead London in April 2014 when the business was reorganised.
