National Express Transport Solutions (NETS), the coach and corporate hire division of the National Express Group, is continuing its growth plans with the addition of a new depot to its expanding UK footprint. The site in Aston, Birmingham is already being used by sister company, National Express Accessible Transport (NEAT). It will now be incorporated into National Express Transport Solutions West Midlands and provide a comprehensive offering of coach and minibus hire in the region. The first private hire work started from the location on 1 April with a Mercedes-Benz Tourismo in the divisions’ new livery.

The new depot will be home to a fleet of coaches and minibuses, offering corporate and private hire.

NETS incorporates Clarkes of London, Coliseum Coaches, The Kings Ferry, Lucketts Travel, Moretons, Solent Coaches, Stewarts Coaches, Woods Coaches and Worthing Coaches. National Express Group confirmed to CBW that these identities will remain: “The existing brands will co-exist with National Express Transport Solutions,” a spokesperson said.
