Go-Ahead has bought Thames Travel (Wallingford) Limited, based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
It carries 1.25m passengers per year in South Oxfordshire and West Berkshire, with turnover of around £6m.
Go-Ahead Deputy Chief Executive David Brown says: "Thames Travel is a strong business with a proud tradition of providing high quality services to the local community. We are delighted that the company will be joining the Go-Ahead family."
“With the resources of Go-Ahead behind Thames Travel, the business will be in a stronger position to grow over the years ahead.”
In line with Go-Ahead's devolved business strategy, the company will continue to be run and managed locally. The fleet will retain its existing livery and branding.
