Stewarts Coaches

Welcome to Bus Zone's unofficial page about Stewarts Coaches. Their official website is at

Stewarts Coaches, formerly known as Stewarts of Mortimer, operate a fleet of buses and coaches for private hire, school and railway work in the Reading area.

Established in 1986 as an operator of small taxis and mini-coaches, they operated school services and some infrequent rural bus services for the benefit of small villages which otherwise wouldn't have a service. New owners in 2003 led to the company's expansion into more private hire and corporate work in Reading, including the acquisition of Reading Transport's Goldline private hire business between October 2008 and February 2009. The company moved from their base in Grazeley Green to a modern facility in Woodley in July 2013.

Woods Coaches of Leicester were acquired on 3rd April 2014.
