The origins of Delaine Buses of Bourne Lincolnshire can be traced back to 1890 when
the family introduced horse-drawn vehicles to cater for local people wishing to travel
to markets throughout the surrounding area.
The first motor bus was introduced in 1919 and daily services from Bourne to Peterborough,
Stamford, Spalding and Grantham were all established by 1923.
Today our fleet of 27 buses is operated by the fifth and sixth generation's of the
Delaine-Smith family and the company ethos of quality, continuity and reliability
is as important today as its always been. The core business is still based around
some of the original services, which have been developed and tailored, using a careful
blend of tradition and acting on current market demands.
