Transdev York is one of seven companies within the Transdev Blazefield group. Transdev Blazefield is owned by Transdev, the sixth largest bus operator in the UK. Formed in Summer 2008 this operation comprises the former Top Line Travel business which includes local school services and the York Citysightseeing franchise and the local bus operations of Veolia Transport. Both businesses were based at the same depot in Fulford near York, where the combined Transdev York operation is now operated from. This new operation further expands Transdev Blazefield's operations in the York area which include Yorkshire Coastliner's Leeds to Coast services and Harrogate & District's Harrogate Service. Buses are also available for hire for various events.
