East London bus group is a large company operating TfL (Transport for London) contracts from garages all over East
London, north and south of the River Thames.

In terms of route 372, it’s sole TfL contract route within the Thurrock area, the relevant garage is located in Rainham
(Essex) and it’s the only garage using the trading name Thameside (not to be confused with the
former County Bus
operation
of the same name!). Other trading names within the East London bus group are ‘East London’ (operates
north of the River Thames) and ‘Selkent’ (operates south of the River Thames).

The company’s history goes way back to London Transport, and beyond, with ‘central area’ Red buses. London Buses,
as it became, was privatised with the garages being grouped together into small operating companies. East London
and Selkent were acquired by Stagecoach in September 1994.

On 30th August 2006, Stagecoach sold both companies to the Australian bank Macquarie, and the companies became
known as the East London Bus Group, although they retain their separate identities on the vehicles.

Route 372 isn’t the first time East London have been in Thurrock - they briefly ran a route 723X between Stratford
and Lakeside under the guise of London Buses. There is an image in the former operators area, within the ‘Others’
page (

On 14th October 2010 it was announced that Stagecoach had re-acquired it’s former London business and thus
Thurrock’s public transport is now provided in some way or other by all five national public transport companies.
