Bland’s is a bus and coach company serving Stamford, Rutland, Peterborough and the surrounding areas.

We offer private coach hire, as well as contracted and local bus services.

We specialise in transporting large passenger groups for local schools and colleges, community groups and businesses. Every school day we provide home to school transport for over 1450 students.

The Bland’s name has been well known in Rutland and the surrounding areas since 1929. Since then, our friendly and professional drivers have been trusted to safely transport several generations of Rutland families and are a familiar sight in the local area.
