Transdev is one of London's leading bus operators through London Sovereign, its wholly owned subsidiary.
A Leading London Bus Operator
Transdev acquired London Sovereign in 2002 and has worked to bring its skills, international experience and best practice to London Sovereign's services.
London Sovereign is one of 20 bus operators serving the capital, operating within Central, North and North West London and carries approximately 30 million people a year.
London Sovereign employs some 450 people and operates 12 routes from two garages in Edgware and Harrow. Sovereign's fleet of over 140 buses carry more than 30 million passenger journeys a year.
A close working relationship is maintained between London Sovereign and its sister companies in the rest of the UK, enabling the delivery of the same service quality culture across the whole of the Transdev Group.
Investing in a sustainable future
The fleet comprises 140 buses which all feature low floor access and are either Euro 2, 3 or 4 compliant in accordance with the London Low Emissions Zone (LEZ). The company is working closely with Transport for London, as well as bus manufacturers, to help develop and test new environmentally-friendly technologies, such as driving monitoring devices to help reduce fuel consumption and thereby contribute to the reduction of its carbon footprint.
Our People are our Business
We recognise that our people are the foundation of this business. We continue to invest in them by increasing levels of training and upgrading our facilities and infrastructure to make their working environment as safe and pleasant as possible.
