Longmynd Travel Ltd is a family owned business which was first established in 1973. During the last 40 years the company has experienced a wealth of success and has expanded to keep up with the growing demands of its clients.
Husband and wife team George and Joan Evans decided to take on a new business venture and start a company. George's father was a coach driver, and George had a good egineering background. The Company began when an opportunity arose to secure a school contract. The Evans' decided to go ahead with the venture and acquired their first bus from their local county council - a Bedford which until recently they still owned as a vintage.
Longmynd Travel originally worked from one office in Snailbeach, from there they were able to establish themselves as a reliable and reputable coach operator and build themselves a loyal client base, many have returned again and again. After the initial success, Longmynd Travel moved to larger premises at Pontesbury and continued to build the company and expand the fleet.
In 2000 Mark and Val joined the business and became partners and started to take over the general day to day running of the business.
In September 2003 Longmynd Travel Ltd relocated to the old council depot at Lea Cross with staff and coaches working from the new base.
