Ensignbus   Model Fleet Focus
Ensignbus secured its first London Regional Transport service contract in June 1986 and subsequently steadily expanded to develop a considerable bus network on the outskirts of East London. The Ensign Bus Company has had a long relationship with London Transport and were responsible for the conversions and sales of the majority of the London DMS fleet. Ensignbus have operated many different types of buses some of which we have featured in our fleet focus.
