Sir Brian Souter's Biography

Scottish Entrepreneur Brian Souter

Little did Sir Brian Souter imagine when he had the idea to run express coaches and launch Stagecoach with his sister Ann that it would grow to become one of the world’s biggest and most respected transport companies and that he would ultimately be an award winning Scottish entrepreneur.

They started with two second hand buses on October 9, 1980 and thirty years later Stagecoach has 13,000 buses, coaches, trains and trams in the UK and North America and more than 30,000 employees worldwide.

In the UK alone, two million passengers use Stagecoach services each day while in North America, the group employs 4,400 people and operates a fleet of 2,800 buses and coaches.

This has been achieved from humble beginnings and built on Sir Brian’s passion for buses which goes back to his early childhood.
